Unless SLi is desired in the future I would shy away from the 780i. Many people are having good luck with it but it's pricy and Intel boards are more reliable in my experience.

Here are a couple contenders at and below the 780i price point:

Abit IP35-Prohttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=ip35%2bpro

DFI BloodIron http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=Blood%2bIron

DFI Darkhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136043

Asus P5E http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131219

I was going to recommend the same thing Thunderer, except maybe just spend a bit more for a Raptor HD

Btw, what about case?
Does he need one?

I highly recommend the Thermaltake Armor.

Edit: Also, I highly recommend staying away from 780i unless he wants Tri-SLI.
I tink it might have been a shot towards the $1,000 mark but I would go with something cheaper & less feature-packed.
Plus nVidia chipsets don't work to well for me, at least :]
Try this

Although I have the Abit, I heart the DFI Dark $140! Can't beat that for price/performance.

I try to keep open-minded and my comments polite but deep-down I think Nvidia boards are garbage especially when price is thrown into the equation. My vote for worst motherboard in the premium price range made within the last three years is none other than the P5N32E-SLI from Asus. I cringe that the thought of it...

500GB HD
Q6600
8800GTS 512
Corsair 550W or larger PSU
Lian Li / Cooler Master case of his choice
4GB GSKILL / OCZ RAM
DVD burner (Sata)
If you get an aftermarket proc, get the 8WA741 from masscool. Not pretty, but very, very effective, and not loud when not at 100%

This will come out to about $950 or $1000. I assume he's gaming? If not, get a lower vid card and up the HD cap.

vista 64 bit. Doesn't suck as much as I thought it did before I tried it. If you have a good system, it's ok. Just turn off all the crap, like UAC.
