Looking for better Mobo

Currently i am using an ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Motherboard for my Core i7 920. I was thinking of upgrading to an Asus Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366. What are your thoughts on performance between these two boards?

I myself have never owned those 2 boards but I do stand behind Asus never failed me yet. My Rampage II extreme has been a great board. My question is why would you want to change to a different motherboard. Don't think you will notice a performance difference.

There will be no performance difference, the only thing the Sabertooth might have better would be OC ability, other than that, I wouldnt bother with a board upgrade on 1366.

save your money, it will be expensive for a high end board on old tech.

If your gonna get a new board make it a Z77 and go with a Ivy bridge, or wait for Intels next chip.

Here's my advice. Changing your motherboard will give you little, to no return on your investment, unless you're having some issue with your current board.

Second, the i7 920/930/940/950 etc,...are all still very viable chips. Wait for the IB-E or even the Haswell silicon before you upgrade, if you want to actually see and feel a significant performance increase. Remember Ivy Bridge is just a tick, you may want to wait for the Tock, and then go full bore.
