I've been looking all over amazon and newegg to find a replacement Motherboard to put my intel i7 940 in but to no avail.
The socket type is (LGA 1366) but most boards I find don't have the 940 listed as a compatible processor. Can I please get someone to point me in the right direction? My price limit is $250, and just getting a new mobo/processor combo is not what I'm looking for since I already have the processor.
the ones I was looking at but not sure if their compatible are as follows

The Intel DX58SO supports that processor, found here http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.asp... but I could find nothing about the Alienware board as far as processors supported.
The Intel is an option anyway...

Thank you so much! It was such a pain finding a replacement mobo. I bought this rig off craigslist and the guy gave me a garbage EVGA mobo that has a ton of blue screen and bio issues :(
