Im looking at upgrading my cpu/mobo/memory to newer tech, so I've been looking at the i7 860 and 920's as I want the higher based clock speed this time round but I'm not sure if my Corsair VX550w will be sufficient for either of these CPUs along with a GTX 260. A new PSU would put me over budget.

The system is going to be used for gaming primarily with occasional video encoding.

I'd like to OC if possible but if not it doesn't matter too much.

Anyone else running a similar system?

Your VX550 will be just fine with a single GPU. If you want to save some money, stick with socket 1156.

Thanks for the reply. The 870 and and 920 are the same price in the UK atm when bought OEM and about £20 difference for the mobos I'm looking at.

The end result is going to be a Win 7 / Hackintosh dual boot, some room to OC would be nice but not essential. Anyway, thats another thread entirely, cheers.
