  1. Intel i7-930 CPUs are available for $200 at MicroCenter (US stores) for walk-in customers. Not sure whether this will help you.
  2. You dont need that CPU for gaming. Drop back to an i5 760 and a cheaper P55 motherboard with USB3. Should put you under 1000 without hurting your gaming performance.
