I need help finding a processor for this motherboard.   https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/H61M-P31W8.html#hero-specification    . I have looked but can't really find anything that good or keep finding the wrong one.

Hi BionicDread,

 

I'd recommend posting in the "System Building and Upgrading" forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/139/system-building-and-upgrading/

Almost any LGA1155 CPU ought to work in that system board.
Are you planning on using it for gaming?
