1156 Socket

My HTPC (see signature) has an 1156 socket. I was thinking about upgrading it to an i7 but can't find this socket sold on newegg. Is it no longer available?

This is where my lack of knowledge may show up but the link only shows socket 1156. Is there a different type of socket that will work with the board?

You want an i7 in an HTPC? Overkill unless you are doing a lot of transcoding. If not, an i3 will suffice.

Amazon has a bunch of them however my suggestion would be new board and new I5 for the same money, less power, and better performance.
