motherboard that supports Q8300

I'm trying to build a computer on a shoestring budget that I can install MS Small Business Server 2011 Standard Edition on. I already have a Q8300 processor so I'm looking for a board that will support this processor (LGA775) as well as 32GB RAM and a 64 Bit OS. I know that none of the current Intel boards fit these requirements but does anybody know of any board that would?

 

 

Thanks in advance

Hello Don,

 

The Intel(R) desktop motherboards will usually not support server operating systems like the one that you are trying to run.

 

Here you can find the server configuration tool that will help you find the parts that you need to run that operating system.
