Default Replacement 1366 Board - current UD3R dieing

Hey Guys,

I'm looking to replace my X58A-UD3R with something else as it is flaking out. A friend spilt liquid on my desk and it hit my fans and exploded all over my case (Dead GPU and dead pci-e slot on my UD3R).

I could probably find another UD3R and drop it in there but hey...new stuff is FUN. I was thinking the Asus Sabertooth looks like a neat board to play with...

Any thought? I really see not benefit in upgrading as my i7 920 @ 3.6ghz is no slouch.
