I'm not sure that quad cores have been released except for server boards.

Try TigerDirect or Fry's.

Try motherboards.org. They have a feature called mobot that lets you find motherboards by selecting preferences. They also have a ranking system. Not sure if this is what you were looking for so I hope this helps.

AMD hasnt released their quad cores yet, wait a couple more months. Intel has quad cores released but they arent a native arcitecture.

I'd try Newegg. I find the site to be much easier to navigate than TigerDirect and TD still owes my dad a $75 rebate check.
