My most modern mainboard for XP was based around an AMD E-350 APU, I think.
It was from Asus or Asrock. Sorry, I don't remember the exact model anymore. :blush:

I have plans to use Intel X79 chipset, Socket 2011, and an i7 CPU.

Intel Z68 or other motherboard chipsets from the 6-series. 7-series should be possible as well, though I don't know the driver situation concerning the intel USB3 interface that was introduced with the 7-series.

I have XP installed on an AMD FX-8320e based system.

X79 should definitely be doable as well.

If you dont invest some additional effort last officially supported are AM3 boards or Z68 boards.

I think some USB devices may help here too: USB sound card, USB network card for example.
