LE = Less Expensive = Limited (in the bad way) Edition
Your buddy is going to need to spend a bit of money if he wants to be able to use CrossFire or SLI in the future. He needs a board that can do x8/x8 PCIe operation, and the cheapest boards can't do that.
A list of candidate boards:
ASRock P67 Extreme4
ASRock P67 Extreme6
ASUS P8P67 EVO
ASUS P8P67 PRO
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe
The MSI P67A-G43 is the least expensive of those listed, and still has the features you want for the future. I recommend the ASRock P67 Extreme4, but it's a bit more expensive.
