    Default i7-950 CPu. Looking for motherboard suggestions.

    Good Day to one and all. New to the page.
    have been hunting on the forms for a bit but was unable
    To find any suggestions for the CPU I have.
    Got a brand new in the box i7-950. Given to me.
    Looking for motherboard seems to be a bit of a challenge as
    most of the ones I have found are no longer instock.

    Any help would be very kind.
    I thank you.

    The Asus Sabertooth was an awesome board. A lot of good reviews. But I have a thing about buying from Ebay.. More so when it comes to computer hardware. Though I guess with a good rep buying one there could be the way to go.. Just looking for more types of Motherboards that support the CPU I have.. The EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Motherboard is also a great board.. I have a few of their boards and video cards and have never been disappointed.

    It also depends on what your going to use it for
    and of course how much your willing to spend
    try amazon you may come across one their as well
    its tough as the older boards are no longer in stock
    Gigabyte also made an X58 board that wasn't a bad board for the money

    Yeah I that is a good idea. I trust Amazon a bit more when it comes to buying items.. I am seeing the price floating in the 250 area which is not unheard of for a mother board and I would pay for. But paying that much for a refurb or worse.. is just not my idea of fun.. I was thinking of contacting the manufactures as they sometimes will sell out of date boards and cards. Was just hoping there was a board still on the market that would take the chip as is.

    I am mostly using it as an off gaming system.. I do a lot of dual boxing and surfing while gaming.

    Ok well good luck if your searching on e-bay make sure you check the box on the left that says "NEW"
    and buy it now only, this will eliminate everything else in the category your searching for.
