Default Good cheap mobo?

Is there such thing as a good quality sub 129 dollar motherboard?

I'd live SLI capability, but if it means I have to sacrifice quality, than I'd rather not.

Any recomendations?

Must be AM2 (or AM2+), ATX or MicroATX, I don't care.. ATX may be a tight squeeze in this case.

SLi capable. MSI are a very reputable board manufacturer.

Man I would not buy the M2N SLI Deluxe. The onboard soundcard is pretty crappy. I have a huge issue now with the sound on the board. Basically I am having to buy a sound card just to get around it.I would reccoment not getting the M2N SLI Deluxe. or any Asus that is using that soundmax sound.
