try ECS mobos.  they are cheap.  you can probably find one for about $50 or so.  Then the rest of your money would go to an AMD processor.

ECS mobos are nice budget boards.  but if you're into overclocking, you won't get much features to play with.  At least more than 3 people here use ECS mobos.  I am one of them.

Also at newegg.com for $63 shipped you can get a biostar M7VIP mobo. It's a kt333 chipset. Just used one to build a computer for my cousin and it seems pretty nice. that would leave $87 for a cpu. You can get a 1900+ for $84 at newegg as well. Good luck

To add, since you posted in the overclocking forum, Im assuming that your going to want to overclock.  In which case, your probably not going to get a very overclockable combonation for such little cash.  ECS makes some nice budget motherboards, but they are not suited at all for overclocking.
