get a new motherboard similar to the old one (compatible setup)

so if I want to replace my 6 year old gigabyte ex58-ds4 with a new motherboard, how can I get one that is similar, such as will fit the space available, use the i7 processor, same connections setup? If this is not enough info I can provide more...thanks!

had a bios screen freeze problem a few times but not sure what caused that. just thought the board might need replacing cuz it is ancient.

If this is it look at the spec's
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-DS4 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel

Looks like a atx motherboard so any atx fits that bill

Socket is processor socket is LGA 1366/ Core i7 (LGA1366) so the newer one would need to have that as an option too

Memory would also need to be compatible as the existing DDR3 2000(O.C)/1333

You can also use cpu-z/ cpuid and show screen shots of all the sections
