Re: Can you all make sure everything works together in this build
Well it's easy. The i7 920 and the Q9550 are the same price, and the 920 will blow the Q9550 away in performance. So if you can afford the extra cash for a x58 mobo and DDR3 ram then get it. If you can't afford that stuff then get the Q9550.
Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
