Well if you can get a deal like that, sure. You wouldnt notice a real benefit unless you had multiple gpu's but still, for $50 net loss, its a good upgrade. Hopefully that chip is a better OC'er then you're 3570k. My old 3570k could hit 4.7 stable at around 1.3v if I recall correctly.

And yea, you could get more then 200$ for it. I sold my 3570k and Extreme6 for $300 (Canadian) a few months ago.

Yeah, if you can upgrade for that little, I'd probably do it.

Nope sorry LGA2011 is a dead-end as well. (Haswell-E if it's ever coming out requires a different LGA2011)

Once you buy 1155 or now 1150, I wouldnt even factor that in. Every new cpu generation seems to have minimal benefits, let alone generate more heat. I suggest buying a mobo and cpu for your current needs. Anything Sandy bridge and on will last a long time. Don't bother trying to "future proof". At least, that's my philosophy.

If I could get AUD $300 that would be pretty sweet. I realise 2011 is complete overkill for gaming, the prices right now for used components are so good I'm thinking 'meh, why not?' (rhetorical biggrin.gif)
