Don't forget an aftermarket CPU cooler. The CM 212+ is pretty cheap and works well.

Cases are a personal preference, so get your dad to pick one that he likes. You're looking at full towers? Best ones for air include the CM HAF series, ATCS 840, and Lian Li A70F all in the same price range.
Great info, yea i was thinking the cm 212 also.. it works very well..
I am looking at full towers. At this point i dont think ill wait till April for SB.. but they do look very tempting
