Hello everyone, this is not my first build but I am not incredibly experienced. I am looking for a motherboard to upgrade my computer from Intel Core 2 Duo to one of the new Intel Core i series. I have listed some info below. If I miss anything pelase let me know.



APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ASAP



BUDGET RANGE: 500 - 600



SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (COD WaW and MW2, FSX, and WOW); Large Downloads; Ripping HD movies and music;



PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Everything but motherboard memory and processor. Currently have two nVidia GeForce 9800gt 1024Mb and 750 watt power supply.


PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Tigerdirect.com preferred but willing to go with someone else.


COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA



PARTS PREFERENCES: looking into geting the new i series processors but dont know what would be good for my usage and not go to overboard. I prefer ASUS motherboard ut am will to go with something else with good reviews.
