Those are a bit pricey, but doable. Any other, possibly cheaper, mobo suggestions?

Gigabyte s2l is what I have. It works great. If you have any questions about it, don't hesitate to ask.

HD3650 is not a good gaming video card, it performs just like 8600GT or HD2600XT

I recommend 8800GS
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88SFDF4 GeForce 8800GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

It cost $30 more but it is by far much faster than HD3650

The one he posted is HD3650, not HD3850
