The HD4850 is better and the E7300 is not much better than the E5200.

So in leu of this... what games is he going to play? You do realize that if he wont OC, he might be bottlenecked depeneding on your CPU and Grafix card config.

See the thing is, E7300s aren't guaranteed to hit 4.0 Ghz. It really depends on the ones you get.

Overclocking, at least moderately is needed nowadays in order to have that eye candy that everyone including me likes to have nowadays. So in other words I agree with the above post that he needs to reconsider overclocking, even it is just a moderate overclock.

I also agree with the above poster's comments

Try this then:
Tri-Core Processor 8650.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103253

sctheluna's suggestion: Asus 4850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121272

Same 790GX as before
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813138128R

Total: $313.73 before shipping.

But if you wont overclock, my previous suggestion still stands since it has a higher clock to start with (2.7) at the expense of being a dual core. So I believe you have to weigh this out. Dual or Tricore if you want to stick with AMD. The Intel suggestions are also very valid, OC or not.

BIOSTAR TForce TF720 A2+ New board not open box personally I wouldn't buy open box if I were building a PC for somebody but for myself sure.

Asus HD4850

AMD Phenom 8650 Toliman

=319.97 before shipping

Also people will say that biostar sucks but those of us who have used a biostar AMD board well they work pretty well and are a great price/performance board so don't bash them. I would never buy a biostar intel board though.

Wont it be a problem? Mixing an Nvidia chipset with a ATI graphics card? How about ACC to OC the phenoms? I don't think that board have it.

I second this man's post. AMD Biostar FTW. Excellent boards. They just have more color than a 25 cent bubble gum dispenser.

Well pcie is pcie unless you are trying to run sli or crossfire. Also as the OP stated it wouldn't much matter (having ACC) since the person he is getting this stuff for has absolutely no interest in overclocking.

Thread Starter 
If he were to go with the 9600 what would be a good, cheap motherboard that would leave room for upgrading in the future? I am assuming most any decent motherboard would be fine for overclocking the 9600 (if he decides he might want to in the future) due to its unlocked multiplier.
