This document is a leaked almost final version of VRD12 is explains the different market segment processors.

Anyways IVY Bridge will be on socket lga 1155, this states that ivy bridge is due in 2012.

it also said SB was 2010, it explain a ****load on how power hungry some of these server chips will be with over 180amp requirements on the VRM. For reference an i7 980x uses maybe 110.

If you are planning on more than 12Gb of RAM, you may want to consider going with a server mobo and ecc memory. Also, with your budget, I think you would find a pair of E5630's would give you phenomenal performance; much better than dumping it all into a single six core like the X5670.

I have two Poweredge machines sitting on top of my bedroom cupboard, but I only have these as they were older machines my work had decommissioned. In other words I would never go out and pay for server kit myself as it's surplus to my requirements. Besides, the true definition of a server is a machine that isn't necessarily powerful, but fault tolerant and able to run 24:7 365 days a year.

Why are you looking to spend so much cash on a CPU? With an overclocked i7 you'll have all the desktop performance you'll ever need. If you want super computer performance, you'd be better suited to obaining CAD programs that support CUDA and going the muliple GPU route instead. Although I have no idea why you would need so much power in a home environment.

In short: Don't go buying server kit expecting power and performance, they're designed more for fault tollerance and redundacy.
