Default Need a cheepie mobo

Looking for a mobo just for light duty stuff and do some HTPC stuff. I was checking out Gigabyte's site (since I like their mobos) and it's a real bugger to find what you want, even using the comparison page of 5 mobo's I had a hard time seeing any difference in features, so I'm asking for suggestions to save myself the aneurysm.

Has to be mATX and onboard video would be nice too though I will probably end up with a HD3450 at some point anyway, digital coax audio out would be a bonus but most appear only to be optical - though it's hard to find out if they can take digital coax through a header. DDR2 capable - since I have some. I don't have a CPU yet but planning on a E5200 or equiv. just because I'm comfortable with Intel or what ever the used market washes up. (hint hint)

Thanks for any suggestions.
