But a real 940 has that nice "works every time, so you don't feel like a mook buying one which had a dead fourth core" gimmick.

Where's the excitement in that.

Instead, you can hope it was made out of a Thuban core and has two other cores to unlock?

Are you doing LGA775 or 1156?

At the quoted budget, 775 seems more feasible.  Also, the way you say DDR3 as though it is a choice further reinforces the LGA775 angle.

I like Gigabyte better than Asus, after Asus couldn't fix a neatly documented problem clearly related to my M3A78 for like 82 BIOS revisions.

Maybe the EP45T-UD3R ($120)?

If you're going 1156, the P55-UD3L ($125) or UD3R ($140) look to be the only options they have.  The 3L is an interesting choice if you want the legacy ports, but the 3R gives you better cooling and connector positions.

Too bad you're not near a Fry's (are you?) they had i5 750 and a motherboard, maybe Biostar, for $199.  no rebates.
