Default Ptle8.0 vista system-replacement motherboard advice

Hi guys, the motherboard in my system went down, and the guy who builds my computer seems to be having problems getting a replacement that is not second hand (MSI X58 Platinum Model # MS-7522). I was wondering if any of you can recommend motherboards that are STILL AVAILABLE that you find work well with Pro Tools 8.0 on a Windows Vista i7 system. My system details are as follows:

Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 32 bit
Pro Tools LE 8.0.1 with Complete Production Toolkit
Intel (R) Core (TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67 GHz 2.67 GHz
Memory - 12 GB of DDR3
hard drives: Seagate 7200 rpm 1.5TB x4

If you need any more info, let me know. My guy is currently looking at replacement motherboards, but I wanted your input, just in case certain motherboards are problematic with Pro Tools 8.0.1. The requirements page for Pro Tools LE 8.0 indicates that motherboards containing SiS (Silicon Integrated Systems) chipsets are not supported, but I wanted to double-check to be certain. I live in a small Caribbean island, so returning motherboards to suppliers is not a simple matter.

Thanks in advance fo all your help.

I think any X58 motherboard will serve you fine. Worst case would be the need to buy a firewire card if the new mobo has an incompatible FW controller. Onboard FW works fine on my Gigabyte X58A-UD3
