more PCI-E lanes, better overclocking

the Foxconn C51XEM2AA has an $80 rebate, so it ends up being cheaper. And it's a better board.

alright alright, ill try to have him increase the multiplier, but right now he has an AMD XP 2600.

once he decides on the parts i sent him, orders them, n recieves them, then i can help him out; heck, i may have to go to his house n assemble it myself so he wont mess up. It would be my first time building a computer for someone else too.
