Hi everyone. So I just got my first gaming PC and straight away decided to upgrade from a GTX 550 TI and put in my new Asus GTX 760 2 GB OC. And its looks like my Q6600 3ghz CPU is bottle necking my GPU(oops). I'm looking at a core I5 but just realised my RAM is 4 x 2GB 800MHZ. Is there any mobo out there that will support:
Core i5 1155 socket, and 4 x 2GB 800MHZ RAM.
Thank you for your help, i'm in over my head.

The lga1155 MB can only support the DDR3 RAM, the 800mhz is the DDR2, so you have to buy the new DDR3 RAM if you will buy the lga1155 i5/MB.
