The motherboard should come with atleast 2 SATA cables. What is your dad going to use the computer for? Work, office suite, gaming?

Well for basic home computer tasks I feel like the i3-2130 is a little quicker. The 965BE is good too though, I've had a few Phenom II X4 Deneb chips. If he does heavily threaded applications like video editing or rendering the Phenom is the better choice. But for browsing you can't get much better than an i3 for the price.
