so I just sold my 1090T I miss it already. So now I'm going blue, and I can't decide which CPU and motherboard to buy. I'm not up to date with Intel CPUs, so I don't know much on what is coming soon. I want the best of the best CPU. I was thinking of buying the 6 core 3960X CPU, but then I saw that the performance/price difference between the 3960X and the 3930K is not worth it.
So I'm thinking now of buying the 3950K CPU and the Asus rampage Extreme IV, but then I remembered that Intel is going to release Ivy Bridge soon. So my question is would the Ivy Bridge CPU be more powerful than the 3930K? is it worth it to wait and buy Ivy Bridge? and which socket will Ivy Bridge come out on?
also I heard that Intel will release an 8 Core CPU, do you guys know when is the release date and on which socket?
P.S I'm not interested in i5 CPUs or the 2600K or the 2700K because they do not double the performance of my old 1090T and I'm not interested in upgrading my PC every 2 days.
