I am running a 9450 cpu and a gigabyte P35-DS4 motherboard. I using Windows 7, 160gig SSD, 8gig of ram, XFX GTX 260 BE, and two LG drives. I'd like to ask what motherboard would be the best upgrade for this system. I know the I7 would be great but going cheap for now. Thanks.

You don't need to upgrade from the p35. Wait until you change cpus and ram. It's a waste of money to upgrade now, unless you can sell your old board for at least $50. All you will gain is pci-e 2.0; the speed difference over pci-e 1.0 is negligable.
