I know that this could sound like a stupid question but I am confused.
I am considering upgrading to a Gigabyte GA-x58A-UD3R motherboard and a i7 950. now the i7 is listed as a i7/Nehalem 950 procesor now I know that the Nehalem is the chip name but Gigabyte doesn't list it as a compatable procesor, they only list the Bloomfield i7-950 as compatable. Is this a typo on the resellers side and if it isnt will the chip work with the mobo?

It's compatible. That's not a typo,Nehalem and Bloomfield 950 are the same CPU.
Just to clarify it Bloomfield is Basicaly the codename and Nehalem is the architecture that is used in the bloomfield or am i confused again
