Definitely fresh install on Windows with a new board - migrating to a new board is an interminable hassle for some people, sucks that everything needs reinstalled but fresh is best

I built a 775 unit in 2010 - gigabyte board - still going strong

That is a good board. If you can find a good price go for it. Are you looking for two pcie slots or one? I found a link to the EP45-UD3L which is the the same besides only having one pcie x16 slot.

Edit: It's not the same as this one has a crappier power phase. The UD3R would be the same but with once PCIE X16 slot.

I think I would just go with two slots.

What would a good price be for the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P? I see them going between $60-$140. Do you think it would be a difficult swap? Size wise, connecting ect?

I think it would be a good swap you might have to add or change some standoff positions but shouldn't be anything out of the norm as far as hooking it up. Price wise they are kind of expensive. I would say 80-100 since they don't make them anymore and make sure you are going through a reputable seller or if on ebay one with a lot of good feedback.

Edit: On ebay the UD3P is running around 140 dollars so you might have to shop around to get one cheaper if you can find one.

Would be better to go for a Solid DDR2 P45 board.

agreed, also i forgot that DDR3 has come back up in price

I found one for $102 with free shipping. Should have it Friday. Hopefully the swap goes smooth.

I appreciate everyone's help.
