And I'm really struggling to find one! I bought an i5 750 off eBay a few days ago, and I'm looking for a particular motherboard to suit my needs so that I will be ready for BF3 at the end of this month.

I currently have a Phenom II X3 720 and a Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4, it's a motherboard with all the nice bells and whistles.



So I'm looking for the Intel Equivalent, which is the P55A-UD4 or P55A-UD3 / R


What I'm looking for is a motherboard with:

Coaxial Audio - This is a must.

SATA 6 plugs (and they should be angled)

USB 3 - This is a must

Firewire as I do some video editing. This can be sorted via expansion card but I'd rather have it on the motherboard as standard.


I'm from the UK and I've been scouring ebay, AVforums and Aria forums with no luck. Every retailer just does not stock 1156 motherboards, well, not the ones I want. I've tried Scan, Ebuyer, Aria, Overclockers, Novatech, Kikatek, Dabs, etc etc.



So is anyone here thinking of upgrading to Sandy Bridge? Do you have the motherboard I want? If so, I'd gladly take it off your hands if the price is right.

Thanks.
