I just wanted to thank every one that posted trying to help! And also give an update. I ended up just buying a MSI board that has an identical processor on it. I was going to do some more trouble shooting when I got it, but just decided to install it and move on. So I'm up and running on the cheap!
When I was looking at new MB's I noticed there have been lots of changes with technology that I didn't know about yet. M.2 slots and M.2 SSD's etc. I have been out of the loop because I haven't been looking at upgrading yet. I knew I was getting close, but hadn't taken any time to update myself on the new computer tech. So my plan now is to start diving in to it and maybe next spring I'll take a plunge and order all the parts and build another one. I need to look at video cards and see who's making the best 6 monitor cards. Are they 6 HDMI's or are they still 6 mini display ports? Is the Thunderbolt a USB 3.1 or is it a connection of it's own means? With USB 3.0/3.1 would I even worry about having a 6 slot video card when I can use USB 3.0 video adapters like the ones found on plugable.com ? Lot's of questions to be answered. Still need to look into MB's, but might go with an Asus. If your reading this, is there a brand that is new or possibly has taken over Asus for reliability in the last few years?
I'm looking forward to building one again, but I don't get in a hurry with this and I always take my time doing research to decide what I want to do.
As always, feel free to chime in if you have any thoughts or run across a good article about some new tech coming out!
