Default best budget motherboard for Core 2 Duo

Ok seeing the prices of C2D motherboards, its just that I cant afford it...may i know which motherboard is the best in the price range of not greater than $100, yeah cheaper but maybe somehow can be good in gaming and have Intel Chipset than other chipsets (Via,Sis etc..)

And what brand of motherboard makes solid ones for Core 2 Duo? Im looking at Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, ECS.
