that'd push him way off his budget, I think thats why he cheaped out on the board, but he can afford the extra $30

Any of these, is a good choice:

ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
Foxconn C51XEM2AA- 8EKRS2H
EVGA 122-M2-NF59-TR
MSI K9A2 Platinum 790FX

Although what vern posted, is better for the money.

because of its 3-3-3-12 timings, and its ease to also push ddr 1200

also that q6600 destroys that AMD build you posted (its quad-core and don't look at Core Clock speeds because they mean BS)

also I've already mentioned that the Sunbeam Transformer's have really loud case fans, its the same one used in the Tuniq Tower 120, and its really loud

That case is utter rubbish. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess your 14.

Trust me when I tell you that a good case is one of the best investments you can make in regards to a computer.
