Same here, not as far as the folding piece but the x58 for gaming. My rig still does everything I need it to, though I am interested in the 3960x possibly. I mainly would upgrade to take better advantage of my ssd's and also to hopefully have easy overclocking lol.

Yeah my main reason is for my ssd's as well. the sata 3 marvell controller on my x58 sucks. That and a graphical BIOS, and Higher oc'ing ability.

yeah i am really looking forward to these 3820's i plan to get one .. then i can run my sli again with my raid controller and even get a sound card and not worry about things getting disabled like usb3 and such .. in my mind p67/z68 weren't worth the upgrade from x58 to me

Those are pretty gpu-bound tests though. The story would quickly change if you used multiple 7970's....

Seriously NewEgg "can only be purchased with a combo?" Wow they have certainly killed my liking towards them. Ohh well, I bought the 3930k after debating over which one to get. I like the 3930k but the 3820 certainly has a great price and maybe, just maybe a little; regretting my choice.
