    Well the problem is this motherboard is out of date and is not in the market.
  3. What CPU exactly do you have?
  4. LGA 1156 motherboards are available on eBay. You have a Micro-ATX size.

    You can always opt for a newer model.

    Here's some 1156 MB's on Amazon:

    If I were in your shoes, I would get a LGA 1150 socket MB and future proof your self some. You would need to get a new CPU too. Your GTX 550 would work and maybe your memory would too. Don't know what memory you have except that you have 4GB.

    EDIT:
    Your PSU would most likely work OK too.
