Sandy Bridge is all that will be released by Intel this year.

The only thing left to release this year are Sandy Bridge 6 core CPUs, that will use the LGA 2011 platform. These CPUs will be called Sandy Bridge-EX (extreme).

Yes, in BFBC2 the difference could be substantial, but for most of the catalogue...it wont.

PS: check my sig if you wanna see the tests I did ^^

I did my order in the right time. The initial release of the P67 that was redrawn is past, and now the P67 B3 has been out for awhile and is tested. Prices are also very nice.

You should also know that, technically, Ivy Bridge is still Sandy Bridge.

Ivy Bridge is just the 22nm flavour for the SB microarchitecture.

That's why SB and IB will both be available on 2 sockets (LGA 1155 and LGA 2011)

For one high-end GPU a Q9xxx@4GHz will do okay, and maybe bottleneck the GPU in a few games, but for SLI/Crossfire two high-end GPU's the Q9xxx@4GHz will severly bottleneck the GPU setup.

And as I also have said, I was bored and needed something new to play with..

I'll get the parts by the end of the week. Then I will use some time building it, reinstalling Windows, get to know the new setup and play for a while. So we'll see.

Hope I'm lucky with my 2500K

Try beating my 32mb time

EDIT: be sure to check out the stable sandy club
Pi performance does increase on an ssd, same as pi times are better running on a hdd raid0 stripe.

For gaming, you might see an extra 10-15 frames per second, if that.

I also upgraded from a Q9550 @ 3.8ghz, and while I am extremely happy with my rig, I know am fully aware that my Q9550 could have lasted me another 3 or 4 years if I wanted to.

4ghz+ 9550 to 4.5ghz SB, +5-15% in games.
9650 sli 570 +50-90% in games.
Even running a 9650 cfx 5870 still plowed through any game, BC2 regularly hit the fps cap, and rarely dipped below 100fps, same with my SB rig.
M2033 gained ~10 fps, same settings, but it did not make the gameplay any better.

Believe me, you'll still see a 50-90% increase in fps.

My only regret is getting a 2500k instead of a 2600k, number crunching needs extra threads.
