I wanted to upgrade my CPU from q6600 to Q9650, but my BFG 680i SLi does not support Q9650.
Thus, I will get the i7-920 with a X58-SLi motherboard.
I prefer the i7-920 (rather than i7-8xx or i5) for different reasons: gaming, because I have SLi, and because the next 6-8 core CPU will be using socket 1366 (most probably).
Beside Motherboard and CPU, it is there anything else that I should buy in order to update my system?
1) Is my current PSU BFG 1000w compatible with X58 mobo? I am currently using it for the 680i mobo.
2) I have 4GB (4x1GB) PC-6400 (800MHz) OCZ memory - Can I use 3x of this ram with the X58 mobo? Would my memory be compatible? (I know that this memory is slow, but this would be temporary, just to start)
