also i see it is certainly worth it compared to buying the 1366 i7 i mentioned, and the best thing, The Price! nice and cheap aint it....
Well cheap for Intel at least, I bet your AMD system you have now was substantially lower cost. Intel's "low end" CPU's are around the same price as AMD's top of the line offerings.

Honestly, a large portion of the benefits of Sandy Bridge are not raw processing power:

-Because multiplier OC'ing is used, speed step can be left enabled while overclocking. What does this mean? The CPU will automatically scale back to 1.6 GHz when not under load, lowering heat, power consumption and noise.

-EFI. EFI is about 10000x better than BIOS. BIOS is a buggy piece of crap that has a lot of problems with legacy connectors and large HDs.

-Built in Video Transcoder chip. This is a co-processor like chip put directly onto the CPU die to help it transcode video. Third party tests have shown that it can almost double the speed of video transcoding, making it faster than a stock GTX 480 at video transcoding.

-32nm process

Because they're trying to justify their 9##X-tremely over priced cpu's, really, anyone who buys a 9##x now needs their head testing.

I'm determined not to upgrade this year, i keep telling myself, do not buy a SB wait for BD, do not buy a BD, wait for IV, do not buy IV wait at least a year...

I agree its around 4x the price of sandy cpu and the benefits are not worth $600
unless your a lottery winner

haha i know what you mean, i did that coming from my Athlon X2 system, bought the 965, then they bring out the hex cores lol.

im am still intrigued to see BD as well though..whenever it is...?

i have been looking at a sandy system today and i think it will be a nice system however im wondering about BD, i dunno i just think that i have always been with AMD apart from an old p4 intel i had for couple of months at most, so i feel a little nervy switching to the dark side...

Comments like this just come from people who are ignorant to the fact the most, if not all, 980x users did not buy their CPU because it would increase their gaming performance. They may use CAD or other programs like myself that utilize the 9xx series from intel.

You forgot about the other category of those who don't need it but bought it because they could just to show everyone how awesome they are with their $1000 CPU.
