i5 will need you will have to buy a new motherboard, a good one being about 90 quid (which is nowhere near price of a X58).

Though as 1156 has a built in PCI-E controller, you'll get less bandwidth/speed/stuff from them (20 lanes or something) vs X58's dedicated Northbridge (iirc) which gives up to like 40...

That could mean some bottle neck if you plan to run a new GPU and run SLI (E.G. at 295 will have bottleneck on a 8x) No idea on Fermi's though, they may even have more bottle neck cos they're more l33t.
