Motherboard died, trying to decide between new motherboard or CPU+mobo

I currently have a computer build which will not boot. I have traced the problem down to the motherboard, and have been looking for a replacement but am not very knowledgeable in motherboards. Are there any decent motherboards which are still compatible with this system? The only thing I was hoping to was perhaps sata 3 support, as I feel the harddrive is being bottlenecked by the motherboard.

Case: Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum
Mobo: Super Micro C2SBC-Q (the dead part)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
RAM: Corsair XMS2 2 GB
GPU: ATI 100-505552 FirePro V3750
SSD: SanDisk Extreme SSD 120 GB

Thank you all for your help!
