    X97? Is that the 1150 socket? Was that an MSI specific naming for the Z97 chipset?

    If it is, the obvious choices are the 4790/4770(k)....I know there was a good price performance Xeon as well, can't quite remember what it was though.

    Get a Pentium 3258 and see how far you can push it on that mobo!
