you'd think with the A-series having iGPU there would be more of a choice for matx motherboards. I could understand before amd introduced them, but at this point it's ridiculous to not have a nice selection

Wow, thank you all for the suggestions! I personally enjoy overclocking, am still toying with my new rig, but for him, not so much. I may be able to set a mild overclock that runs stable, but I doubt he will ever change his clock settings, and I would have to squeeze out some $$$ for an aftermarket cooler. I never trust stock coolers for overclocking.

This will be my friend's wife's computer, I doubt it will ever be overclocked or upgraded again, they will likely just buy a new one, or at least have me build one from scratch haha.
As such it does need a good cpu/gpu but we can scale back the mobo a bit. I'll explain to them the fun of an SSD but for now just need the core 3.

Ok, here we go. Very overclockable piledriver quad-core, full featured overclock durable micro atx mobo, dual channel ram, a very overclockable gpu, and a 60GB ssd (because it will make her think her rig is so fast) at the magic number of $350.
