I'd wait.. you know you should wait too since you asked. I mean, If you are perfectly fine with what you have now, just let the whole buzz over SB blow over. Adding an SSD would definitely make you happy for now.

Of course an SSD would probably make a bigger difference in your case as stated previously
Agreed. Secondly, you'll have much better performance from a BRUTALLY fast Quadcore... Unless you use Cinebench *snickers* a lot

If you wait til Bulldozer is released, you won't likely make out like you're going to now, and have to shell out more cash! I did the exact same trade except for an i7 930 (selling ATM), and was definitely worth it!

Herp Derp! P8P67 and 2500K in stock at my MC right now

2600K is in stock too, but I don't think it's worth the extra $100.

Decisions decisions... I'm caught up in the hype!

I did man. For me, part of the decision is if I sell NOW my 1055T is worth more money.

I don't think I will see much real world performance though. I was just all kinds of giddy over easy 4+ghz overclocks...

Makes sense to what till Bulldozer is out then decide.

A: Sandy Bridge should be cheaper then.

B: You have a much better representation of what performance you can get for your money.

My 1055T goes down in value the second BD comes out, so it will be a much more expensive upgrade.

I hear you though. And I'll probably be sticking with my 1055T just because it's difficult to justify the upgrade if it costs ANY more than $0 since my machine does everything I ask it to right now.

It's part of the rush of getting new parts and overclocking new stuff... you just get caught up in it
you don't need a 120gb SSD, all you need is one with a minimum of 30gb for windows. I use 27gb on my SSD for window's and a few minor programs. everything else goes to my HDD's. It also makes it nice when you need to reformat.

I would sell now... Your 1055 will net your more money. Sandy Bridge will probably not be much cheaper in 3-6 months (people seem to forget this is INTEL). $30 is NOT much cheaper in my book.

Anyway, as far as Real World performance goes, you might not notice much if all you do is game, but trust in this... With the world swapping over to Quad-Cores as the New Dual-Core, software is going to utilize multi-cores much more efficiently (at least Quads), so a much faster Sandy Bridge (raw core speed) will then be noticeable to a much higher degree
