Back on topic, you're going to have a very tough time finding a new 1156 board. Your best bet is to look around the OCN marketplace and fleabay.
If you want something brand new:
That's a great board and will allow Crossfire or SLI at 8x / 8x.
That was actually one of the ones I was looking into. I don't know much about BIostar boards though.
And I wish I had the 35+ Rep. Because I could sell off my AMD stuf and get my i3 suited up. I've tried craigslist with no luck, and I can't sell on eBay either.
Biostar TPower boards are honestly some of the best out there in a lot of cases (especially with overclocking). People tend to shy away though because of the name, but they forget that Biostar has come a VERY long way since being an OEM only brand.
I had the TP67XE (1155 version for Sandy Bridge of that board), and I honestly regret trading it for my Asus P8P67 Pro. I know of some AMD users who use the TPower line as well with great results (890FXE, 990FXE).
Considering that's the only good option on newegg, its not a bad one. I'm just not really sure about that pricetag, considering its older technology.
