IMO The only thing that really influences my opinion on things like these is that I have never used a DFI board because when i order parts there usualy slightly out of my budget.
What about when he learns how to conifigure voltages and CAS timings? He will need more options, I have no experience with MSI, but DFI and Abit pretty much kick everything elses ***. So hopefully MSI has alot to offer or your pretty much getting screwed.
