Holy ****, what a moron. 18 years old and types like he's... 18 years old high schooler, lol.
If you want helpful advice, just take the time to write out your questions properly. We all hate ******* grammar nazis but your posts are terribly obnoxious to write. Think about what your posts 'sound' like in our heads, when i read your posts I imagine some punkass ghettorat who you can't understand at all. It's obnoxious.
If you aren't going to take any time making a good post, no one is going to take the time to give you a good answer. Why the hell should we help you, right? What do we get out of it? Well, we want to be nice people. But if you aren't going to take the time to google this **** and figure it out yourself, why should we spend half an hour trying to figure it out for you? I'm not going to do your homework for free.
Your question is completely nonsensical. Your literally asking us to look into the future. No one here can know the answer. Everyone who is trying to, is speaking completely out their ass.
Remember when bulldozer, and piledriver, were months from launch? "Dont buy phenom ii or sandy bridge, just wait until bulldozer comes out, it'll be awesome'. Turned out both BD/PD sucked ass, and Phenom II is actually, still, the go-to chip for a sub $500 build. Now, we all guess here that Haswell will be great, because Intel has a reputation for improvement, improvement, improvement, but really, if you asked this question about Ivy Bridge, the 'right' answer would have been just buy sandy bridge - IB is great, but it's only 5-10% better, not so much better that you should wait 6-12 months for it.
All current estimates seem to show that haswell will only be 10% better, and IB was predicted to be 20% and ended up being 5-10%. So what do you think that'll mean? Haswell is also focused on the IGPU and mobile processors, so by the time you see haswell on a desktop cpu, a real quadcore, overclockable, unlocked CPU, it might be at least 6 months, and maybe another 6 before prices come down from being absurdly high.
Then there's the motherboard, which is going to be very, very expensive when it comes out. Nowadays, you can actually buy a P67/Z68 and buy a bios chip to update it, or find a used p67/z68 for cheap to use with IB. But with lga 1150, it's going to be expensive right off the bat.
Also, i5-2500k or i5-3570k is the ONLY 2 choices right now for intel, gaming (i7 isn't appreciated by gaming/general usage and way too expensive, i3 isn't true quadcore but is okay if your budget but phenom ii overclocked is better deal and performance for less money). You might not know how to overclock now, but you will eventually learn in 2 years, and for only $10-20 more, it's definitely worth buying K edition. Overclocking on SB/Ib basically guarantees at least another 1ghz for only $20 in a hyper 212+. To pay for 1ghz+ in performance costs at least $100 in cpu's, so overclocking is definitely worth it, and is very easy to do. No one will ever recommend a i5-2400, or i7-3570 plain, because it's a rip-off when you can't overclock, and that's why they tend to sell for so much cheaper. They suck.
You've asked a dumb question over and over and won't listen to many, very, very smart people telling you advice (granted, out their ass). No one can tell you if Haswell will be much better. Ivy bridge, and sandy bridge, are great CPUs, just because haswell comes out in 6 months and turns out to be this glorious, ******* awesome chip, still won't mean your SB/IB will be bad, it will still be a great chip. There's just as much chance that haswell sucks as it's good, and you have to realize the lga 1150 and the haswell chip itself will be very expensive at launch too, maybe so much so that it just plain isn't worth it (Bulldozer could be a great chip too... at the right price, which it currently isn't).
Who the **** knows dude. If you need a computer now, then you need it now and there's nothing you can do about it. No one here can predict the future. There will be a new CPU coming out every 6-12 months, if you want to wait for 'the next big thing' your gonna have to wait a very, very long time.
Both SB/IB will overclock to 4.5-5ghz, generally. Get the Hyper 212+, not the Hyper 212 evo, or the NH-D14. They are all good, just cost different. You can figure out overclocking on your own, don't ask here, don't ask us to spoon feed you like a retard (because you type like one, that's for sure). There's been a million ******* who type poorly like you who've asked and asked how to overclock, use ******* google dude. It's very simple, and if you think you're too stupid, you can always figure it out in 2 years, you don't need to overclock right away. Just the $10-20 premium is worth it just to overclock in 2 years.
