    Hi all,
    I just bought a i7 920 at a killer price and need advise on a good MB and memory that won't break the bank. If possible I would like to stay around the $200 for the board, give or take $25.
    There are soooo many boards and reviews I'm getting spun out.
    This will be used for gaming for the most part. Need your help. I'm upgrading from P4 3.4 first generation dual core, Asus P5WD2 Premium. I've been living in the Dark Ages.
    OS Win 7 Home Premium/ Vista Ult./ XP Home
    Cool Master Hyper 600Z CPU Cooler
    Cool Master 932 Haf Case
    Cool Master 500w ps
    Thank you

    Thank you for reading my distress note. I looked at the EVGA board you suggested, but it has a 1156 socket, mine is a i 7 920 1366 socket. Do you still suggest EVGA Boards? I read they have problems detecting the correct memory speed on posting, or is that user error?
    I still need your help.
    Thanks
