Me personally I will be waiting on IVY-E because I am looking for a serious long term build. I am hoping it wont let me down. Keep up the great work here at OC3D. Cheers from the States.

I'm sticking with what I got for now.......only upgraded to my i5-3570K not long ago, from a Phenom II 960T which unlocks and clocks to 3.9ghz really easy (which is now in my 2nd rig)

I'd be more than happy to stick with my 2500k for at least 3 or 4 more years before I decide to upgrade to a different socket

As much as I want to (and as much as that 6.2GHz rumored OC at 1.2V is enticing) I just don't think I'll have the funds about to do so. CPU and MB are behind a new case, PSU, GPU and SSD on the list of things to get sadly

Not upgrading, but will probably do another build with Haswell.

Just bought new gear can't justify an upgrade just now

Am I correct in assuming once Haswell is released then Sandy/Ivybridge hardware will come down in price?

If they do come down in price then I might just upgrade to a SB-E rig and be done with it. There isn't going to be any games that I can not max out with a 3930K and a 7870 Tahiti LE.

Doubt I'll upgrade my rig to Haswell from my 3570K, however I may see if I can afford to build a benching rig around a 4770K
