Default Dell Vostro 220 MB replacement

Hi I have a Dell Vostro 220 slim tower with a messed up motherboard. I want to replace it but the stock board, aka Dell P301D system board, costs nearly 90 dollars which seems rather expensive. I have very little knowledge of compatible motherboards that would function in its place. I would just like to know which motherboard would be the cheapest replacement so I can get the computer running again.

Just did a quick search - looks like a socket lga775 micro atx board.
I'd recommend one of the following options:

1. Replace board with Asus P5G41-M (best value i know of) assuming your computer has a core2 duo processor

2. Replace board, CPU and RAM with Asus M4A68T-M, Athlon ii x4 640 Quad Core Cpu, and 4gb 1333mhz Kingston Value DDR3 (few more dollars but you'll have a new computer running in that box for a low price point)
