Currently I have a (Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80569Q9550) My MB died and I wanted to keep my processor and upgrade. I was looking for a FSB of 1333, PCIe 2.0, DDR3 @ 1333 and that's all.. the rest I don't care about.

The problem is I can't find any sellers that have any MB in stock. If anyone has any idea please let me know. Thanks
 
Solution
Well even if its not Express 2.0.....PCI Express 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.0. And there is only a little performance gain from 2.0 over 1.0

Thanks 4the help. But I might be confused here... none say PCIe 2.0 all of them just say PCIe Can they handle a PCIe 2.0 card then?
