    I think it may be easier to pick a out a motherboard if you tell us more about what you want. Like which processor exactly that you want.

    But if your looking for something you can upgrade in the future with out going through the hassle of buying a new board, get a 2011 socket because I think that is the is the new IB socket.

    If you just want something rocken go for a 1155 socket
