Best advice is to wait until next month with Ivy Bridge coming out and the full line up of Z77 motherboards. I would look at a i5 3570K to go with that.

On current availability I would say a ASUS P8Z68 V Pro Gen3 or a MSI Z68A GD80 with a i5 2500K

On the AMD front, if you accept the lesser per core performance and weaker IMC then the FX 8120 on a ASUS Crosshair V Formula is a consideration.

The i7 920 is getting on now, a better upgrade will to be to look at a 950/960 or better but the old i7's have reached the end. Performance wise the cannot mach sandy or ivy and in most instances match the lower priced Phenom II x 6 Thubans in performance.
