And new RAM?

I'll be picking up the i5 combo today though. I can look for deals on RAM in the mean time. I'll go with 8 Gig which should be fine.

Will it work with the same MoBo?

And I can ditch my Radian HD 7850 with this? I do 3D occasionally.

I suppose I need some new RAM too. Suggestions?

That's not slacking at all!

Does that HTPC serve as a front end unit too? Mine does and is connected to the main HT.

Good point. How much do you figure that would be? Any MoBo suggestions?

Of course I'd get more RAM as I'm only x86 right now with 2x2Gb and will go x64 with 2x4Gb or 1x8Gb on this upgrade too.
