I picked up an i7-930 chip, whats the difference between the x58 and P55 boards? I wasn't anticipating on spending over $200 for a mobo, can I use a P55/1156 board with my i7 chip? What are the drawbacks?

Also, I need memory suggestions as well, thank you!

You are going with a X58 motherboard that uses triple-channel memory (sets of 3). It is pretty standard on these setups to go with 6GB of memory. If you are running a 32-bit OS, I would go with 3GB (3x1GB) setup instead.
