Exclamation Low end motherboard for parents

My parents are getting me to build them a low spec pc for websurfing and eventually I hope to teach them to use it as an htpc, but I have no idea what sort of low end motherboard is any good It will be running a Core 2 duo e6300 2gb ddr2 800mhz and a pci-e graphics card. They would prefer if it was less than NZ$150 (US$110) and I would prefer if it was M-atx because I want to buy them an HTPC case for it.
