More about total build
  1. For your hard drive you should get at least 7200 RPM because 5400 is pretty damn slow for gaming. You should also get an i7 930 and upgrade your videocard a bit more unless you plan on crossfiring it.
  2. That mobo and cpu arent compatible.

    they are, p7p55 is i5 and i7 compatible
  4. The P7P55D Deluxe is compatible with 1156 i7s, but the i7-950 is a 1366. Also, the i7-950 is a waste of money since OCing the 920 & 930 is extremely easy.
