Mail in rebates are kind of a crapshoot. Honestly I wouldn't worry about it too much - the quality of the motherboard matters more than the discount.

at the first time, I'm not include SSD to this list, but since you do programming I think SSD is really necessary to make the programming software run fast.
and since you're gammer too, 1060 6gb is best for your budget.

I like this one, just would get a board that allows nonK OC, like the B150M Hyper or H170 Hyper.
But if he's not into oc, that would be fine.

I agree with you, at first thought I put H170 hyper in that list, but I don't know he's overclock or not, so I just playing save.
but if he's do overclock B150 Hyper or H170 Hyper is way to go its not a big differences in price though.

It's nice but an SSD is important for faster loading/boot times. An HDD alone will do well too, but if you can spend some more, spend it on an SSD.
