I'm on the same boat: got all parts bought and can't decide with MOB
EVGA E758-A1:$265 aMIR and Lifetime Support, UGLY ! Strange NB HSF.
ASUS P6T Deluxe v2: $290, 3 year Warranty with so-so support , nice looking, more quality components
Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5: $280, 3 y.Warr w/unknown support, strange colors but more features than bouth above, have x21 multiplier.

Do you think EVGA plans to release new 1366 board and that's why (i hope) prices will fall down further or jump on it now ?

That's from newegg.COM. 265 American. :P

But, I need to wave the eVGA A1 flag, uber support, lifetime warranty. Can't beat it.

God I hope so. Maybe something with a Hydra chip, and SATA6.

But realistically? I wouldnt think a refresh will happen till Q1 '10 at earliest. Just no need right now without sata6 drives. So you're probably safe to pick one up today instead of waiting 3-4 months.

What about EVGA's CLASSIFIED E760 over E758-A1 ?
CLASSIFIED got VERY low benchmarks also:

Not worth it, except for epeen/case looks. Unless you're extreme overclocking on peltier or LN2 etc, you'll hit the (generally) same clocks on either board.
