Default Cheap mobo manufactour names?

Hello all im trying to pick up a cheap but good mobo for an athlon 64 939skt cpu.

ive been looking at foxconn asrock, orion mobos and was wondering if any of you lot know any other good but not in the mainstream mobos that i could look into. i mean its no good looking at manufacturers like ASUS or DFI as they cost a bomb. ive been trying to get one for around 20-25 but people just keep slightly out bidding me.

thats what i got last time for this build: http://www.computerforums.org/showth...t=cheap+system

sold that one for 150 and now i plan to make a second, was just wondering if there were other manufacturers that i could use or look at.

that asus is good for the price but i am on a really really tight budget and that with postage would push it straight over. the object of this biuld is make a fairly decent system that will be used for office work, web browsing and even games such as COD if they choose but for the cheapest price that i can get it for.

well with supersaver delivery i just checked and its only 31.94 which is only a few quid over budget , and it would mean you could give the buyer when you sell it the box and instructiosn etc for the mobo as that is something some ppl want

but also look at foxconn they make perfectly ok motherboards and i have had no problems with mine at all
msi are another one that creep into mind , i wouldnt get an ecs tho cos i had one a while back socket A and it was horrible , crap layout and unstable

I have 2 ASRocks. Haven't had any problems with either. I would recommend them. I think I heard that ASRock is made by ASUS, but I may be wrong.
