Upgrade to i7 component opinions


Mar 14, 2009
I am looking at getting the i7 920, with ASUS P6T SE motherboard and OCZ gold OCZ3G1600LV6GK 6GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 CL 8-8-8-24 triple channel memory kit.

I have an ARCTIC Fox Freezer Pro that I am planing on using for cooling as this mainboard has the mounting holes for a 775 cooler.

Any thoughts please

the whole fun of the X58 is it can support both CF and SLI. The SE only supports CF not SLI. I'd spend the xtra to get both. How often do you really change your CPU and Mobo? I went through 3 Video cards with my last motherboard, and used both ATI and Nvidia. I wish it would have supported both.

As suggested the P4T or UD3P
