I want to reuse my Intel i7 920 LGA 1366 processor and my EDGE Tech 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) memory. I need 6 slots for 4GB sticks each for a total of 24 GB of Ram. I was hoping to get something good for around $200. Any ideas?

I just bought the NZXT SWITCH 810 case.

If you aren't opposed to open box:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
that's a decent board, though not the best ocer.

A good idea is to look at the ocnet forum's marketplace. I've bought tons of used parts from users there and saved a bunch of money. The 1366 family is a bit old now so there isn't much selection on newegg.
The marketplace is here:

You'd have to make an account before buying something.

You could also think about scrapping the 1366 platform.

This would be a great motherboard for you to look at and it is a micro Atx but that's only because there are less slots and I'm sure that you aren't using more than one video card so it would work for you and it has a lot of features.
It also has sata3 and usb 3.0 which is good for a x-58 board plus great sound with THX from the SupremeFX X-Fi 2 Built-in.

OK another question. My friend is buying my Dell XPS 9100 with the 920. In the rampage motherboard can I use the 960 as long as it is 1366?

So you want to buy the i7-960?
Yes it will work as long as the socket type is 1366 , you can use any i7 (1366 pin count) cpu in the 1366 socket and the X-58 chipset motherboards.
