You shouldn't be so picky about colors for an LGA775 motherboard in 2011!

I don't mean to sound obnoxious, sorry.

Maybe u could be able to find some asus rampage socket 775, they look cool, and they'll cost u around 100-120 euros. Great mobo with Sli support.
But they'll probly be out of stock.
Like this guy said, don't be picky for 775 mobos in 2011, all good ones have been discontinued and they're all *** ones with integrated intel graphic cards, for mammas pcs.

I got this one for replacing an nforce 780i SLI:

Not that ugly but it feels cheap and it has 4pin connector (like all 2011 775)
and i'm looking around all the world for an adapter from 8pin to 4 :S

This one also looks cool, and has 6 audio input jacks, it's all black

It has also a clear cmos button, unlikely in this low end boards.
At least these 2011 775 got ddr3 1333 support, dunno if performance diffrnce is really noticeable from ddr2 to ddr3, but meh fast ddr3 1333 is cheap!!!

Hope that helps
