Question about motherboard CPU compatibility

Hi, I had a question about a particular motherboard I was interested in buying for the SLI capability with 2 8800 ultras, as my current board only has 1 PCI-E x16 slot. Anyways, under supported CPU it says Core i7, or LGA 1366 socket type. I was wondering if this is the only CPU it will support, or if it would be able to support my Phenom II X4 910? How can I tell what socket type my CPU has?

Here's the board.

Also, while I'm at it, would a Corsair AX750 be sufficient for two 8800 ultras in SLI?

Thank you!

No newer boards support both Intel and Amd cpus; it's Intel only i7 1366 only. And your power supply will support two 8800gt's.

It is an Intel motherboard, so your AMD CPU will not work. You would need to upgrade to an Intel Core i7 950 for example. You could go with one of these AM3 / SLI boards with DDR3 to meet your needs.... AM3 980A SLI Boards
