This would be my first choice:

It is uATX though, not sure what your case will hold. If the case does not support uATX, let us know and can definitely find more. I found about 5 - 10 (Asus / Gigabyte / MSI) that were under $75 for good value, met criteria and were different sizes. The link above I saw provided the most value for your buck.

✔ Best Answer
All motherboards have integrated sound. I suggest you avoid boards with integrated graphics as it severely limits the choices. The board suggested above is based on the older AMD 760G/SB710 chipset combo. The AMD 900-series chipset is designed for the FX-series CPU. Consider the following AMD 970/SB950 board & cheap Radeon HD 5450 video card. You'll still be under $100 but both the board & graphics will be much better.

BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ - $70

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 - $20 after rebate

The most apparent limitation with most mATX motherboards is they only have 2 RAM slots. I don't see any boards on newegg that are based on the 900 series chipset that have integrated graphics. The board riider listed is probably the best buy but not the only choice in that series. See the link below.

You can compare multiple boards to see the differences in the features and warranty.
