To be honest no-one has a clue how Bulldozer will perform. Release won't be till Q2 2011. If you can hold your breath till then i'd say make your decision when it releases.

There are no benchmarks for Bulldozer. CPUs for BD will not be available for another 6months or so.

SandyBridge 2600K is looking, at the same clocks, to be up to 10% faster in some tasks that an i7 875K using less electricity. With SB being released, there should be some good deals on i7 and 1156 gear.

Well...except for those waiting since August, when BD was "just around the corner".

Just go for Sandy Bridge imo.

I think AMD releasing Bull Dozer at a later date was just a marketing strategy. First of all, they probably assumed that Sandy Bridge would snatch most of the customers so it's best to just release later on when the excitement for SB has dwindled. Second of all, they want to make consumers feel like it's going to be worth the wait and have an epic introduction of their new architecture without Intel's interference. Whether it will be, I'm not positive, but something's telling me Intel is heading more in the right direction than AMD is. Intel is focusing on less cores but better architecture, speed, cache, and overclocking. AMD is focusing on putting a bunch of cores on the CPU and claiming that apps will distribute the tasks evenly across the board.

Personally I think Sandy Bridge looks awesome. 5 + ghz on air,fast architecture, runs cool, low TDP. Not sure what else you could ask for at this point.

SB isn't enough of an advance over the current 1156 for me.

If I were you id be looking at a 1366 setup now and then when Bulldozer finally comes out, make the decision then.

In fact, I am thinking of a 1366 based system myself.....
