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?
