Do you need to have a board like that to run a corei7? The reason I'm asking is because when i build a computer I want a core i7, and if I have to get a board with only ddr3 that won't be very nice

yes core i7 requires ddr3 because the mem controller is on the cpu as opposed to being on the mobo for s775

Thats correct. Intel i7 requires ddr3, Intel 775 goes either way.
