I may just buy a decent replacement board and make this the kids computer in a few months when I can justify blowing a grand or more to build something new.
LOL I have no idea how I missed the part about your board bit the dust. Anyway, yeah $500 for a platform overhaul is not a good idea since it won't get you to the really sweet spot. Save up till you have $800 to $1000, then go for an i5 750 + 5850/5870.
