So, I have an Eken M009s that I have broken the sensor on 3 times now and I am sick of the underpowered piece of shit.

I am taking a step up now but it still needs to be on a budget. I want to keep it under $125 yet have a 800mhz processor or better, at least 256mb of ram, Micro SD card support, CAPACITIVE screen, Android 2.2 or better, and at least 2gb of internal storage.

Here's what I have found:
Ainol Novo 7 Paladin
ONDA VX610W
Gpad A10
Generic 2.3 tablet

I want to know which one of these is going to provide the most bang for my buck.

As much as I know about the last 2 generations of desktop and some laptop components I don't know jack shit when it comes to tablets hardware wise.

From my experience cheap products are cheap and break easily. So I wouldn't choose neither of them.

If you want cheap and good I would at least save up some more and vouch for the Kindle Fire or the Nook Tablet. The Nook has better specs but personally I'm more biased towards the Kindle Fire since their customer service is better (I used to work as Kindle Support so I definitely know what I'm talking about) and amazon's marketplace is greater than Barnes & Nobles (e-books and such).

Oh my god... you do know how limited the Kindle Fires and Nooks are, right? They both have a seriously dumbed down version of 2.1 running on them as well.

Either way,
You'll want something durable and sturdy that lasts and won't break as easily and maybe even with good customer/warranty service backing the device up. That's how I would go at least... I favor reliability first and then take into account performance.:)

I see, as I recall though it is better to have full functionality in a price range that I can afford over limited functionality outside of my price range.

While you make a good point, those Chinese tablets all have Single Core CPU's, for a tablet that's a little on the meh side.

Right, but I don't have $250 to go and blow on a tablet either. I literally only have a budget of $125 that cannot be stretched if I plan on having electricity.

save up for a while and buy a TF201.

The phrases "value" and "worth the wait" come to mind

One problem.

At the time I made this thread the Quad core tablets weren't out and I needed a tablet that I could just hand down to my brother because at the time they were said to come out in September.

Buy a used nook color, root it and you can put a custom from on it. I had a nook color and I double booted android 4.0 and android 2.3
