Geek sanity check

My computer is running out of gofast, so it's time for a new motherboard. I'm contemplating:

Intel i7 920
Asus P6T6 motherboard

As far as I can tell, the price break between the 920, 940, and 965 probably make the lower-end chip a better choice. Yes? Is it worth spending the extra money? Is there something I should be looking at instead? (No, a Mac is not on the agenda for a lot of reasons.)
