I have a used Intel LGA1366 i7 968 Cpu from my old broken (2010) Gigabyte X58A-UD3R motherboard and have been unable to find a direct replcement for it. Would I be able to use a current board such as the Intel DX580G or DX580SO2, even though my Cpu is probably only second generation. If so, would this then allow me to upgrade this cpu to a later cpu in the future?
Any suggestions would be most helpful Regards, Laurie

Hi,
Any LGA 1366 motherboard should be able to accommodate the CPU.
No upgrade possible to a newer generation CPUs (different LGA).
