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.

+1

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

Scratch my last comment. Apparently, select motherboard with 1155 chipset can run IB
