yea ok but if he/she is keeping for for 2 years or so then its not as it outperforms sandy anyday. 1155 plantform was only here for a short while as the new socket 2011 in q4 ish or early 2012 ( then i bet intel will make another small socket off spin). Why wouldnt you want a top of the line cpu that beats a sandy ? If u had the cash I know I would. I think the sandy 1155 is a stop gap when Bulldozer and Ivy arrive it is going to be interesting.
edit: I am think on bulldozer for my next build of it all goes to plan but who knows. This industry changes every day as people take new gpus and last series to the next top oc. That makes the industry IMO.
