Default Building barebones with ~$200

need a processor, ram, motherboard and powersupply.
things I already kinda have in mind for my friend: e21** or 22** series processer, cheap $40 ram, and a fortron group 430 watt PSU for ~$40, now all i need is a motherboard for ~$80, anyone got a build proposal or a good motherboard for around that price?
