I am looking to get a new motherboard but i don't really want to be changing my processor. so... I'm looking for a upgrade from a dell xps 8100 motherboard.
what would you guys suggest? colour scheme needs to be black/ with hints of blue. I have looked at the DP55KG, but my knowledge on motherboards is very limited.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Which processor do you have? Asus motherboards come in black and blue. They have a good reputation. What do you use your computer for?

i have a i7-860. The computer is used for gaming.
and thanks for the reply
i was starting to lose hope and started thinking im going to have to bite the bullet and buy a whole new setup >.<

the cpu is about 3 years old, the only issue with buying a new board is the fact of my current cpu is 100% fine and powerful enough. its just trying to find somewhere that sells a decent MB

Hard to find one now. Maybe on Amazon or ebay. Or upgrade to a new system and try selling the CPU
