sandy bridge is coming out in a week and it will be replacing socket 1156. would you be opposed to sandy bridge?

what is your budget? do you have any parts compatible with your next build? ram, video card, power supply, case, etc?

I will be getting board cpu and ram trying to stay under 500 or close to it, I may just end up getting a used q9550 on ebay for 200 instead and putting that in my sig rig

is your sig rig not performing well enough to play games? if you want more gaming power, the Q9550 is a great quad core and will run pretty much everything, specially when oc'ed. then you can save up for a SB rig
