I want to build a PC with an I7 930 and a SSD drive for the system and the programs install. I'm looking for a motherboard that has a good cost-benefit (affordable) and supports SSD drives. Thanks.

Any motherboard that has SATA connectors can be used with a SATA SSD.

If you buy a very high-end SSD that has a transfer rate in excess of around 300MB/sec, you probably want to look for a motherboard that has 6.0Gbit/sec SATA ports.

^+1 Agree. But get a Intel based mobo. ACHI and TRIM are only supported on Intel boards, as they are Intel "products."

Try the motherboard that they choose for the latest System Builder Marathon, $2000.00 build, its a Tom's Hardware Recommended Buy:

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R.

If you're gonna get a SSD, get a large fast HDD too, for data/media. Only get a SSD large enough for the OS and Programs you want, and put (for example) My Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, and Gaming files on the HDD.
