upgrade from 1055t to haswell?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My current specs:
mobo: msi 970a-g46
cpu: 1055t @ 3.5ghz
ram: kingston hyperx blu 8gb
gpu: 7870 crossfire

With the release of the new haswell chips only being a few weeks away, should I buy a new board and cpu? Or is my current system okay (no cpu bottleneck) and I can get a 120hz monitor?

Overclock to around 4.0GHz if you can and see what Piledriver has to offer, as well as Haswell.

I've read that going to piledriver is more of a sidegrade. I've tried overclocking to 3.7 but I needed 1.48v vcore to make it stable which caused the temps to shoot up to ~60c when running prime95.
