The P55V? I've actually just looked it up, it doesn't seem very good. Like I've said before though, your motherboard is supposed to be one of the best for that socket, so you'll have to be spending a lot more than $90 to get the equivalent. The equivalent of your motherboard but for LGA 1156 would be this one.

I'm not very clued up on socket 1156 motherboards, though, if I'm honest. You definitely couldn't go wrong with the GA-P55A-UD3. It uses the same Ultra Durable technology as your current one.

I would suggest starting a thread in the Intel Motherboards section because there'll be people who are a lot more clued up about 1156 boards than I am.

Without an SSD, then perhaps this would be better:

Core i7-760 (same as before):
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819115067

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813128412

G.SKILL PI 2x2GB 1600MHz 6-8-6-24:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820231351


So you've got a better motherboard there, and RAM with much lower timings, but you don't have an SSD.

Of course, you can always add one later if you feel like you want faster boot times.

Well, it's hard to really compare your motherboard to that one as they both use different sockets and are designed for different CPUs.

But, since you asked:

Supports USB 3.0
Supports SATA 6Gb/s
Supports DDR3 RAM

It's quite similar to your motherboard in some ways, it's just newer and designed for a newer processor and DDR3 RAM.

Your board currently has USB 2.0.

USB 3.0 is mainly useful when you're talking about fast USB flash drives and external hard drives.

Nope, that one is the next model up.

You probably wouldn't need that one unless you want to overclock, though.

It's also not available on Newegg.ca, only the US site
