P6X58D Premium CPU upgrade

Current:

Asus P6X58D Premium

Intel Core i7 930

I want to upgrade my CPU, is it stupid to just upgrade it without buying a new motherboard?

Thoughts? Suggests? Upgrade limit for this board maybe???

Any help or input would really be appreciated.

  1. There is really no sense to upgrading your cpu with that board as it is a dead end upgrade path. Save up for a new MB/CPU combo and reuse your existing ram.
  2. Yeah, thought so. What would you consider the best board around these days?
  3. If it was me, I'd wait for the next generation of Intel chips before doing an upgrade. There's alot of life left in your system. That being said, I really like this MB:
