You can't go wrong with a i7 930/1366 though, I just got one myself!
You need to think carefully about what your priorities are with this build though, as an i7 doesn't see much of a performance advNtage (if any ) over and i5 with most current applications.

His mother board supports SATA which we use for hard disk and other devices but the mother board use DDR2 memory. We have 4 G installed.
We already added Raidmax 730 PSU as well as an EVGA 512 M 9800 graphic card. Besides Games we also use the PC for Home movies where we record edit and convert AVI to DVD's
Will we doing that much better in performance using i5 750 or i7 930 concidering that not all games utilize quadcore and multithreading. Not sure if the video processing mention earlier will gain from mutithredaing and Quad core.
Is this really that much of an upgrade??!!!
