Intel-CPU motherboard that still supports DDR3?

Looking to upgrade a spare system, and I'd like to keep as much as possible. I've got a PS, 1050 GT, 16GB DDR3, case, keyboard, mouse, etc I can re-use, just need an intel CPU and a motherboard that supports the CPU and DDR3.

 

Such a beast still exist that isn't total shyte?

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

You could spend $200+ on a used 4790k off ebay and another $100 on a used Z97 motherboard.

Or you could buy a Ryzen 2600 + 16GB of DDR4 + B450 motherboard... And sell the 16GB DDR3 memory to make back some money.

Z87 and Z97 motherboards can be found for very reasonable prices if you're willing to forego things like SATA cables, manuals, OEM boxes and occasionally I/O shields. Any Ivy Bridge, Haswell or Broadwell i7 is still more than capable of just about anything you'll throw at it.

Sincerely,

Or get an X58 board for $100-150 and a Xeon X5675 for $30, then OC that sucker to 4.5Ghz and it'll compete with an R5 1600 for a lower price, and it uses DDR3. Some X58 boards even have USB 3.0 and such built in, I have an MSI workstation board that does. My ASUS Rampage III Formula doesn't, but that's easy to fix with a PCIe USB 3.0 card, but I don't really transfer much data over USB so I haven't bothered.

Do you have a suggestion for the x58 board?

I don't need USB 3.0, but won't complain if it has it.

I believe Gigabyte made some good ones, along with the ASUS Rampage II and IIIs. Good overclocking boards demand a premium, but the CPUs are so cheap and you can use your old RAM so it offsets the cost. I did score my ASUS Rampage III Formula and X5675 together for $120 though. You can always ask in the thread I started about it, there's a lot of more knowledgeable dudes there, especially on the subject of overclocking (one guy pulled a 5.8GHz or so OC IIRC, using dry ice to keep it cool or something).

I have no interest in OCing anything, so that will cut down on potential issues, but thank you for the links

in terms of price/performance, there's nothing comparable with used 3rd gen i3+mobo, if u need more performance then 3rd gen i5+mobo

 

btw 3rd gen uses solder which means lower temperatures, while next generations use thermal compound under IHS, probably not much difference though unless overclocked
