should I wait for Ivy bridge? (Since its just an augment of sandy bridge)

should I see what bulldozer has to offer ( despite the hi power req for the chip) but I already own an OC 920 which already has higher power requirements?

I should probably put this into a new thread shouldnt I.

In closing. nice post it made me re-evaluate some things I already knew. I probably just had buyers itch or something.

If I were you I would wait for Haswell. In my view, your system is more than enough for the next few years.

These are Russian Hardware testing labs. Russian reviewers to simplify. Although X-Bit Labs is also Russian with the majority of it's reviewers and editors/staff being Russian or from the former CIS countries.

I can't wait for my next big update. Haswell + new crossfire/sli cards.

on a second note I am the second amd cpu guy to comment on this.

This is OCN. Nothing is ever "enough". It's about excess and spending money on unnecessary needed PC components.

Thats true but power consumption is very important to some. On top of that SB get ~ 500Mhz more then fist gen Core i5/7. Like me i sold my old 920 system and got a 2500K and made $30. Noe the CPU is faster for games, more RAM, Better Sata 3, MB runs cooler then X58 UD7 and CPU runs like 15C cooler both at max OC.

Hopefully they can keep improving at this same pace into the future.

I used to be AMD only and I am so glad I switched. I don't think I'll ever go back to AMD even if they pull a rabit out of the hat because of all the false advertising of bulldozer.

^This. It makes no sense to buy a 990X now. Not even for $500.
(Besides, like the others said it is nearly impossible that you`ll see that price drop.)
But technically SB-E or the 990X don`t fit since they are 6core babes.
But it will be nice when they update the article with 4core IVYz.

I think we've come to a point where more cores are needed over IPC jumps. Ivy bridge will be amazing but intel's only putting out 4 cores on 1155. IMO 6 core SB-E > 4 core IB in everything except gaming.
