Need help upgrading my computer

Specs: Windows Vista 32bt, Dual Core @ 2.4 GHz
Ok, first off hello, and thank you in advance for any help. I'm trying to "re-amp" my existing computer from it's old dual-core processor, and aged GeForce 8500 GT, and add the punch of some fast speed RAM.

Secondly, since this is built off an existing computer I don't believe I need any extra cords(Other than the ones that come with my new parts), or a bigger tower (Maybe? I've hear the new CPU is big).

Here are the new parts I'm planning on adding. If any of you have prior experience with these guys, please speak up and tell me of any confrontations or if the power supply won't be enough.

MotherBoard (since my old Pc came with a cheap non- namebrand one ) - XFX nForce 750i SLI Extreme Motherboard - NVIDIA nforce 750i


CPU - Intel Core i7 920 Processor BX80601920 @ 2.66GHz


GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Video Card -


Cooling - Corsair TX750W 750-Watt Power Supply - ATX, 140mm Fan, SLI-Ready, SATA-Ready, 80Plus


RAM - Kingston PC10600 1333MHz 2GB DDR3 Triple Channel Desktop Memory Upgrade x3



Any help will be greatly appreciated. I want a new rig with enough power to shell out high end games for another year.

I also want to know that when I replace everything if I have to then buy Vista again, since it's now a 64 bit processor and right now I have 32 bit.

Total comes out to about $840 which is about $250 - less than the FX 6800 I was looking at, with a better GPU.

I want to make a benchmark of Crysis @ 1440 x 900 (native resolution) all high and 4x AA with 30+ FPS

Or Max out CoD 4, 1024 x 768

Or dish out well against Modern Warfare 2.

None of your links work & I'm not gonna dredge them up. Here's a hint though. The 750i motherboard isn't compatible with the Core i7. X58 boards start at about $175 & go up from there.
