Default which motherboard to buy...

I need a new motherboard, since mine is really old. These are my old motherboard specs HP and Compaq Desktop PCs*-* Motherboard Specifications, A7V8X-LA (Kelut)*
I want one that works with DDR1 ram, and my AMD processor. Preferably I want it to be cheap around 70 dollars. I dont know much about motherboards. Any suggestions on what to buy?
