LOL if moneys not an object then you will always be waiting for the next best thing. If money were no object to me then I would definitely go SB and then you will be set for a couple more years and by that time. Rockwell will be out and you can post this exact same thread.

If you ever had shorty smalls you would miss it too.

Good luck with whatever you choose my friend.

I would buy the i5, sell it immediatly and make some cash. Then grab a 1155 and SB or wait for Ivy. You don't want to be stuck with 1366 or 1156 even if they still give out good performance, cuz at the end you're gonna end up throwing the i5 in the dumpster and getting Ivy.

i imagine his friend is giving him such a great deal because...well they're friends. turning around and selling it for a profit is a little on the 'i'm an enormous ****head' side.
