OK guys, I've been getting parts for this computer for a long time now (lack of money) and this is what I have so far:



Intel® Core™ i7-950 Processor (8M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 4.80 GT/s Intel® QPI)
Corsair 6gb DDR3 XMS3 INTEL I7 9XX Dominator 1600MHZ (3X2gb)
Ati Radeon HD 5970 2gb GDDR5
Corsair TX650W Power supply - 650 Watt
And some random HDD


My question is: Which Motherboard would you recommend? I need that and a Case and I am good to go! :)
Thank you!

I don't know your budget but I know you're using LGA 1366 instead of 1155 where the money should be at. I don't think you should spend too much on a motherboard at this point. My suggestions are:

ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 $155

Cases under $50:
CASE: Cooler Master Elite Mid Tower RC-310-BWN1-GP $40

Rosewill Challenger $50

COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 $50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119227

Cases around $100:
Cooler Master HAF 922 $90 [$80 after MIR]...
