No board can use C2Q and i7.

Let break it donw.

C2D and C2Q = socket 775

i7 = socket 1366

i5/newer i7's = socket 1156



alright so i should get a 1156 socket if im going after the Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz cpu..
now between the gigabyte or the asus i prefer asus boards

There on the same grounds for me, some Models are better than others, so when buying a board, I look at models (asif they are 1 big company), benchmarks of specific models, and reviews, thats how I choose between Asus and Gigabyte.

I prefer Gigabyte, but I have an ASUS board now. Both brands have never given me any trouble. My first Gigabyte board had a bad capacitor but I got a new board an hour later at the store. No big deal. I'd go with Gigabyte if I had to choose.

Either are good, i have only used ASUS or Gigabyte boards and to be honest, neither are better than the other, their quality is the same, it's all a matter of preference.

On another note, i find ASUS boards to be easier to OC with, but the Gigabyte boards have slightly more options...
