Hi, i'm planning on refreshing my current pc by buying a new Motherboard, CPU, and RAM. I'll be keeping my Gpu (9800 GTX) my PowerSupply (Corsair 620 hx) my HDD, DVD, Monitor (1680*1050) and case (Coolermaster Stacker 830). I´ll probably be buying in the next 2 weeks from the egg. I want to keep it under $700 bucks.

So what i've been looking at so far is:

option 1: ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

option 2: EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard

-CPU: Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz

-RAM: option 1?: CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8 G

option2?: G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ

So, I'm not sure what mobo to get and what RAM. i got bad experiences with corsair before, but that was just once and i'll let it go.I'll be using it mainly for video editing and gaming.
Thanx for any help.

what about the GPU?
Do you really need a i7? Because if not you could save some money like for the video card.

i already have a 9800gtx that i'll be keeping from my last build. My question was rather about which mobo to choose and what ram to go with it.
