I just built a Core 2 duo system with an intel DG965RY. It doesn't have raid or over-clocking (which your mom probably doesn't need). It has OK onboard video which works fine for office applications. Intel has a reputation for stable, long-lasting mobos. You can find it for around $100.

Cheers!

The intel boards have a PCI-e slot if you want to stick in your own card. Just disable onboard video in the BIOS.

Or if you wanted to go even cheaper with a 946 chipset:

Intel BOXD946GZISSL Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 946GZ Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

around $80 at newegg.
