That doesn't mean that all AMD mobos suck. It really depends what company you go for.

if you dont want to waste money on an AMD PCIex then go with Intel they are cheaper.

What video card are you planning to use?

If its one that is cheaper in PCIex and more stable, such as the lower budget Nvidia and ATI cards then get a Intel CPU and a PCIex board.

Also does he plan to ever upgrade in the future? If so get a PCIex. If not the AGP is better.

Yeah it looks like people like it. I would go with that one over the MSI one that is 30 more expensive.

I wouldnt go with ECS though. The chaintech $130 one looks nice enough.
