ok. Can you recommend me a good motherboard for an i7 CPU? And are i7 CPU's faster than the Core 2 Quad ones?

I don't know much about them, but I don't want to spend a LOT of money. Probably keep it in the $2-300 dollar range max, but the cheaper the better for me. I was looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128409
