Yep, that's the right mobo and socket for the Sandy Bridge CPU.

Did you check the motherboard website for the compatible RAM list?
Good thing to check to make sure you don't have RAM problems.

I would suggest a 256 bit video card , as long as your building new you might as well get the latest available technology.

i can't afford a 256-bit gfx card at the moment as it's quite a sudden jump in price, I suppose it will have to be the first thing I upgrade then

I would wait until the motherboards with the new chipsets are available.

Looks like it will be in April.

The new i5 (2500) and i7 takes a 1155 socket.

The i5 760 takes a 1156 socket, they are not interchangable.

what is it that makes intel processors faster than AMD processors?

the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T has a frequency of 3.2GHz and is outdone by the intel i5 760 in THIS bench test.
