    Hi, thats good processor from Intel in i7 series but I will recommend i7-930,because
    it has same price as of i7-920 and has more features than 920 and i920 is going to vanish soon.
    For i7 compatible motherboards you can visit the following link and from my point of view the Gigabyte GA EX58 UD3R is good enough within price ie Rs12000 or $240 .

    You can also go for ASUS P6T or MSI X58 Platinum which are in the same price range.To compare the above 3 goto the following link :

  2. Men, every motherboard with socket 1366 and Pci-e 2.0 is compatible for i7 920 and 5850......

    I think you'r question is, what is better buy...


    About memory, if you think to overclock then take one with higher frequency up to 2133mhz, if not take 1333mhz...

    i7 930 have more feature than i7 920 :heink: ?

    Can you tell us, which feature have i7 930?

    Except a clock higher, everything is same.....
  4. Yeah I know there is not much difference between i7-920 & i7-930.But there are some changes in i7-920 which results into i7-930.
    1)One additional multiplier added
    2)Higher stock frequency
    3)More OC room
    That makes it better in performance and in price as well.I got one and it runs great.
  5. I recommend yo to go for the ASUS P6X58D-E.

    Here you have a review:

    There is an interesting article about this matter in this site:

    About the memory, Corsair (Dominator series) and Gskill are my favorites.

    Yes 930 is better, but just becouse have higher clock and nothing else.

    And ofcorse for just 10 bucks more, better option is 930 ..
