well if they can afford 250-300 on just a cpu. then of course the newest i5 K would likely get the recommendation.

Looks like we have a winner.

I'd like as many suggestions as possible though.

Mostly gaming, but I dabble in lots of things.
Hell, I could go to newegg and just buy whatever is in my price range, but I want to get a good range of opinions.

This board seems pretty smart.
