What would the CPU used and what are the prices? Generally speaking, the differences in prices between used Nehalem parts and used Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge parts tend to be small enough that the latter makes far more sense for making a basic budget build. It's very easy to find used i7-2600k CPUs on ebay for about $20 more than the i7-870.

The motherboard can be used with CPU having iGPU, but the motherboard itself doesn't seem to include a video output.

So this motherboard model is clearly made for those who want a powerful external GPU.

Now i have thinking to buy the Xeon x3430 I think some where $8-$10 (yes it's used) but I don't know is it compatible with the Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3L.
