Upgrading to SRAM X1 Crankset

Okay, my bike currently has a Shimano Deore triple crankset with a matching Shimano Deore SM-BB51 bottom bracket. I would like to swap the crankset for a single chainring SRAM X1 crankset. I'm really more familiar more with SRAM components than Shimano.

Would I have to replace the bottom bracket? And which SRAM crankset do I end up getting? GXP or BB30? I'm thinking GXP with a new bottom bracket? Any help is appreciated.

Thank guys for the help!

If you've got a SM-BB51 in there now, I don't think your frame will take a BB30, so you'll have to go GXP and I'd probably go ahead and get a new BB with your new crankset.
