Upgrading your motherboard would not make any difference on "performance". Better motherboards are for more features and more overclocking potential. The biggest item in your sig that needs an upgrade is your processor, which you will most likely need a new motherboard for the new AMD cpus, or need an intel motherboard if you are going that route.
