I just want to unscrew the cpu block and slap a new cpu in there.. I dont want to have to go through skinning my fingers with fittings and sweating my balls off all over again for 3 days to overhaul. I want to upgrade the cpu and leave my pc alone for 2 years...
I know how you feel, although it took me 8 hours solid to take apart my old rig and fit new mobo and cpu, but it was so worth trashing my room and several towels for!
If i was you, i'd sell one 590, buy a P67 Mobo and i7-2600k (keep your ram) and you'll have a BEAST of a system - you'll still have money spare after buying the mobo and cpu, put that money into a cloud computing stock for 3 month and with that you can buy the 2011 socket when it comes out.
