Exactly this. There's always something new coming out. Just go for the instant gratification Ivy Bridge is worlds away, and there's plenty of computing to be done between now and then.

No in this case, I wouldn't go with instant gratification. If you have a computer that can tide you over until Ivy, I'd most definitely wait. The 3D transistors that Ivy has could be completely revolutionary. Plus, SB is on the 32nm fabs, while Ivy is on the 22nm. I'd wait for Ivy - lower power consumption, better performance.

The question is, how many of us SB guys are going to nab an IB when they come out?

I Bought the Sandybridge and I just know after the Ivy Bridge comes out, I will be soo jealous reading about how everyone's O'C is amazing I will be buying that as well. Expensive hobbies I have

Tri-gate transistors > all

At first I was just riding out my 950 debating SB but when Intel announced that they were changing the world with Ivy Bridge I was sold.

Ivy Bridge is only suppost to go 20-30% greater in speed. I'm thinking if you are a gamer and still have your old GPU's, its not going to make much difference. Otherwise I'm going to be posting my desktop for sale on Ebay in less than a year....

I have 2 6970s, they should last for 2 more years on max at 1080p with 60FPS, that will allow me to get Ivy.

I was going to build a Sandy Bridge setup for gaming, 1080p editing and large photo editing. I had about a $1k build limit and decided to wait till Q4 and Q1 next year to see what unfolds.

So I threw down $150 on a decent LGA 775 system and having a lot of fun OCing it.
It edits my vids and photos just fine and I get to save my money for now and decide on a SB or IB build when the time comes.

So, I vote to enjoy what you have and if it is a stupid slow system (Like my old AMD 64 2.2ghz) then upgrade to a 775 system for now.

Its going to be worth the wait, and if it wasnt then you will save some money waiting as a Sandy Bridge build will be cheaper.

I am afraid of the HDTV Effect. I am referring to the people who waited for HDTV's to get cheaper and cheaper and then now there is 3d HDTV (it's a joke that the more you wait the more there is to wait for) and that I need to get on the bandwagon as soon as I can. I am using a Athlon x4 and I hate it. I really want to rebuild my rig from the ground up and I do not want to wait another year. Because if I do, Intel will come out with a 14nm CPU and then I'll wait for that, and etc.

I think I'm going to get a 2500k or 2600k depending on my paycheck. If later on I find out that IB is insanely awesome, I'll upgrade when it is appropriate and I give my old SB to my girlfriend who actually uses Photoshop and 3D programs and etc.

I personally I only game, I might fold, and the only 24/7 thing I do is leave the computer on because I am too lazy to shut it off.
