Why don't you just go lower end. If it is just for your parents and they don't game too much why not get a sempron 64. A sempron 3100, 1 gig of ram, a 200 gig seagate, and a dvd burner should be a perfect build for them. You could get this mobo too:

IMO you dont need all those useless parts for a mid range computer.

any self respecting computer builder would shudder and and get spots infront of his eyes at the thought of using a THERMAL PAD for thermal draw!
