not really, a lot of that would be on the I/O on a motherboard...

Just an example. You can get something like this with part of what you need: Newegg.com - Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Then get something like this to add to it and give him what he wants.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811998094

again... there are other alternatives... this is just an example... some are not as expensive as others


BUT... will the mobo be able to handle all the extra devices he wants to add to it? I mean have all the I/O ports for it.

USB 3.0 is plenty for anything. I would get a case with 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front and use extra cash to buy any adapters you might need.
