    Sette Reken is a cheap Pricepoint.com frame. Might do the trick.

    Keep your eyes on Ebay, be flexible and know your specs. 19" is a pretty common size, but knowing your approximate top tube length helps too. I ride a 16-17" frame and know that I can fit about anything with a 22-23" top tube.

    It only took me 2 days to find my Rocky Mountain Vertex frame. $80 for a nice light Easton alloy racing frame was hard to beat. Good luck.

    Nashbar has cheap frames on sale, their own house brand. They are perfectly serviceable.

    Lots of possibilities but think about:
    - if you like your current frame, check the geometry of the new one
    - check head tube length of new one, if you want your old fork to fit
    - check head tube style on new one, you may end up having to buy a new headset
    - check BB
    - do you want or need plugs for V-brakes

    You may want to spend a bit more to have your existing components fit.

    I have built bikes using the Nasbar hardtail frame and the old Leader hardtail frames (I think Leader has changed their frames? you can still find the old models to buy) - purchased both under $100 each. I have no complains on either.
