Hello, I recently wanted to set up a home server using spare parts of my previous PC, however, it turns out that I bent some of the pins in the motherboard, I don't know when exactly.
The motherboard is an ASUS H61M-K, here's a photo of the socket:


I don't know what to do, should I try to repair it or buy a new motherboard? This is an issue for me as if I buy from Amazon / ebay I will have to pay a lot in shipment and I can't find any DDR3 motherboards for this CPU at a reasonable price.

Edit: the CPU is an Intel i5 3330
