Hi and welcome to OCN.

You have a good rig, if you don't have any performance problem why change it?

You have a good CPU and a GPU that support DX11, so, the newer games will not be a problem.

You can wait for PCI-E 3.0, but keep in mind that as new technology will comes out a little expensive.

Instead of waiting for a PCIE 3.0 motherboard, you could wait for a AMD Radeon 6990 dual GPU graphics card to come out? which is in Feb or March
