I recently bought an msi z77A-G45 motherboard with the hope to use it with an i5, but I got a sweet deal on an i7 4930K.. the question is can I use this motherboard with this CPU, if not.. what do you recommend?? Thank you!!

No you can't. The 4930k is an LGA2011 socket chip, which means it requires an X79 motherboard.
I have the Asus P9X79 Pro which has been working for me really well.
nope your gonna need a new mobo, sockets arent compatible.you need a LGA 2011's X79 based chipset.
yeah I guess I'm gonna have to spend another 100 bucks and get me another motherboard, thank you for your fast responses
