Thats probably all he can afford for the motherboard.
We need more info. Like are you going to game? PhotoShop? Your gonna need more parts like 512-1gb of ram. If your going to do ANY gaming, you need a respectable videocard. Most people think that sound cards are a waste. Most mobos come with integrated sound in them already.
PC Specs:
CPU:Intel p4 2.8ghz Northwood.MoBo:Asustek P4sd-le.Ram:G.Skill DDR400 2.5-3-3-6 1GB(2x512mb)HDD(s):1:80gb Segate Barracude7200rpm w/8mb cache92:120gb 7200rpm w/8mb cache seagate barracuda\'s Video Card:eVga 6600GTPSU:560w Thermaltake Silent Purepower. Full sleeved.Case:Blue RaidMax Cobra(many mods). Fans:3x80mm blue LED fans.1x 120mm blue LED fan.Misc:

My sig was too big. I put it on a diet. Viva La Firefox!
