@ o1die - thas what i had in mind. But see theres a lil' problem with my budget. I cant spend THAT much when it comes to a 'Core i5 - DDR3 ram - mobo' combo. Thas why i was looking into LGA 775 boards. SLi boards, they have an issue with overclocking - they're riddled with fsb holes.
I had looked into the Maximus II Gene, but now they're out of stock. BTW newegg doesnt ship overseas
And i'd want to stay with an ROG board for him cos he has a cool clear window case
What about i3's?
@veni12? where is th CPU mentioned?
