Should I do this? I know my 1090t is probably one of the best cpu's out there, and that I really don't need to upgrade, but the fact that there is something better out there compels me to want to buy it.

Would I notice any real world gains? Basically all I do is game, would I notice a difference? I also encode videos, rarely, and I already know SB will beat me on that one.

So this is my plan if SB beats the 1090t in games. Sell:
Crosshair IV for $170
1090t for $189

That would give me $359, are there any good SB setups I could do with this?

-Thanks, Sean

EDIT:
Some things that might turn me away:
1- The 2500k, which is in my price range, doesn't have hyperthreading.
2- Ivy Bridge will be released within the year, 28nm.
3- Even the 2600k is only about 15%-20% faster than my 1090t.
