The Neo is a higher quality unit than the Basiq Power, which is quite cheaply made. I thought it was a great deal at $60, when it's normally $100+.
I personally would go with the Biostar TA770 (Mobo). I am currently using this and it performs great.
All 780G boards have the newer SB700 southbridge which not only enable better overclocking on the Phenoms, but have many more SATA connections etc. And having integrated as a backup is always a plus.
I didn't add a cooler because it sounded as though he wasn't overclocking.
