so the i7 you have would work?
from newegg about the e8500: [from a poster]
Pros: Absolutely amazing chip. This thing will not only run or OC well, but OC's 4.2 Ghz on AIR. Speed and rates as well as load times etc etc etc are painlessly fast and efficient. Recently just built a Quad-Core Q6600 and this just embarassed it. Bravo Intel, bravo.
Cons: OCing with an MSI P7N Diamond 780i is a bit annoying, but definately doable and stable.
Other Thoughts: If you're a gamer/enthusiast of OCing your chip, dont even hesitate to buy this proc.
