Actually according to Cantor's group set theory (which all multiplication is based on) 3 x 0 = 3 and 0 x 3 = 0 Yes yes you can google all sorts of people that don't understand math and even wolfrum alpha will say 3 x 0 = 0 I assure you sir, In the next 20 years you will find out 3 x 0 = 3 3/0 = 3 and 0 x 3 = 0... It would take too long to explain it to you here but Myself and a few mathematicians have been working on this for years.
I'll be curious to see that proven, given that all kinds of mathematical formulas that have been proven to be accurate would not work if you fundamentally changed how division works. Things like asymptotes in Calc would be destroyed by this if 3 * x approached infinity but then became 3 again at exactly 0, and then was approaching infinity again when x was negative. Forgive me if I'm skeptical.

Same here, I'm not planning to upgrade my i7 930 till at least Broadwell, possibly later.
This may be partially influenced by the fact that I don't want to ever take apart my water loop though.
A water loop and only running at 3.8Ghz? Blasphemy! I'm running at 3.6Ghz right now on a stock heatsink (don't ask).

Depends on the need. If the usage is mostly gaming, even a Bloomfield won't be a bottleneck for a long time, the GPU will remain the determining factor. You would be upgrading CPU, and motherboard and you still might end up with the same FPS (based on your monitor's refresh rate).Edited by lordikon - 8/10/12 at 11:47am
