I’m thinking of upgrading from the i920 to the i970, as well as upgrading from the rampage II to the III, and lastly upgrading from 6 sticks of 12gb ram to 3 sticks of 12gb ram. End goal is around 4.5ghzish, current chip can do 4.6

Worth the upgrade or should I wait for the next gen of Intel cpu's to come? And does anyone have any info on them at all?

Whats the difference honestly , thats a very minor upgrade if not at all .. wait for ivy or go sandy if ur in a rush ..

I can tell you going from a 860 to 970 there was no difference, at least in gaming. The reason why i upgraded was i got the 970 for $250 from Intel retail edge and i sold my 860 for $200. I sold rest of my lg1156 and got lg1366 without hving to shell out anything The two extra cores and 4 extra thread is worth $50, but definitely not worth $500 that you have to spend.
