Is it really worth it?
I'm more than happy with my 3770K right now. I don't see how dropping £300 on a new chip is worth the ~10% performance increase.

If you were buying or building a new rig it would make sense to go Haswell. Definitely don't think it's worth jumping on if it's just for the sake of it.

Yes. I am still using a Core I5 760. I usually dont get the best CPU but this time I'm going for the 4770K (Its overkill for me but I want it anyway)

For me it's definitely time for an upgrade. Assuming the prices are good, otherwise 1155 here I come.

2500k will hopefully be fine for the next 2-3 years.
Otherwise hardcore overclock will fix that
Chuck in a new GPUs and i'll be good to go.

Upgrade

I'd love to upgrade to the new gen or maybe a hexa core from the sandy E bridge, but i just don't have the cash to spend more money or enough to justify the upgrade with the current prices if the sandy E bridges fall in price which they most likely won't i might think about upgrading. but i guess with the new upgrade means i'll have to get a new motherboard as well just more money that i don't have and can't really see the benefits of doing so right now.

nah my i7 950 still does its job, and pretty darn good i might add. I would if i had money to spend, i'd upgrade just for the sake of it, but as i'm a student and i don't have a car(not even a driving license), i'll be saving my money for that.

I'm not sure if I'll upgrade to haswell , maybe in a year or so , depends on what kind of prices the new boards and processors have. I will be watching for reviews though.
