Default Review upgrades please

upgrading my computer and wondering which CPU? I was thinking the i7 920 as I could spend the least amount and still OC above 3.2 and get the same speeds of the 940. Paying for the extreme version or even the 940 I think will be a waste of good money that could be spent on other components. What do you think?

These are the planned upgrades:

Intel Core i7 920 - 299.99
G skill Triple Channel DDR3 1333 (3 x 1GB) x 2 (6GB Total)- 338.98
Asus which one?
1. Rampage II Extreme - 398.99
2. P6T Delux/OC - 338.99
3. P6T Delux - 299.99
12 Gb GSkill DDR3 Tripple Channel
2 500 Gb SATA II HD
2 BluRay Burners
2 9800GTX+ in SLI
ASUS Rampage II Extreme
Intel Core i7 920 @3.8 GHz
