If you already have a copy of Windows no reason paying for it again, I have yet to. (Just copy a friends, most people have it).If you want to keep it upgradeable, definitely go with socket 939. If you want a cheap motherboard with PCIe, I would go with the Chaintech VNF4. Dont know if it is right for your sister though, it only has one PCIe slot and is more for overclocking...

if you want the best of both worlds (agp for now, pcie for later), then you should go with the asrock mobo. I have always been an "either or..." guy

I've been looking for two of those matrix 10 bay cases (black) and cannot find them anywhere at that price, do they have them in black too? I want to bolt two ontop of each other and put my phase change setup in the bottom one and my reg comp in the top one.

They did 2 weeks ago. You would have to call them and find out!

I think the Asrock is a good choice. Being the owner of one, i can vouch that its a good stable board with many good reviews lingering around.
It has AGP for your current Video card. PCI-e for future cards. Skt 939 for nearly all 939 processors including dual core and upgradeable options to the new m2 socket.
So far, I love it. No problems.

Everything else looks good.

I bought an ASrock board last year when building my system the onboard lan stopped working within a week. Just FYI.
