motherboard query

I need a replacement motherboard but one which I can put my QX9650 extreme processer.
I know the processer is 2-3 years old but it can still hold its own and I hope not to have to update my system

Asus Maximus Extreme Intel X38 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard
the Asus Striker II Formula nForce 780i (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

Depends if you have SLi or Crossfire.
EVGA's 780i instead of ASUS if you plan to go SLi.

You don't say what you use it for, but if it's mainly for games (like FB is guessing) then you'll be fine for another 2-3 years I reckon. Overclock it with a good cooler & you could get even more out of it.

Where are you thinking of buying it from though? You'll only get the models FB is suggesting at eBay, & the first one is DDR3 RAM. Otherwise, I would suggest an ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo DDR2 Crossfire £84 click here. Couldn't find a S775 SLI for sale in the usual stores. If you don't need Crossfire, then you could get a cheaper one.
