sb isnt coming back till about next month or April...better to go with the 17950 which will yeild great results..although the 1090t oc to 4ghz will give you everything you need...the price has dropped so it would benefit you alot...but if its for gaming..best to go with a phenom II x4 955 or 965 and oc it...that is, if you can get it cheap...probably get a 955 oc it and use the extra cash for a powerful gpu or ssd...thats where youll see your greatest performance gains

OC your Q6600 and wait for SB to come back or see what Bulldozer can do.
This guy has the best advice so far. With all the confusion with the different sockets and cpu's coming out, you are best to push your Q6600 to 3.7 like me on a H50 and wait. I still haven't found anything my system is lagging at that requires me to upgrade. The upgrades now are just for epeen and Crysis. I haven't understanded it much.

965 would be better than an i7 920?

well...it depends...between the i7920 and the 965 I would go the i7 920 if you can find it cheap..otherwise get a 965...Im coming from a q6600 cpu myself with 3 gb of ram...and I have used the 965, 1090t, and I currently have the 2500k cpu...of course, the 2500 k destroys everything else (for my needs) but if your gaming..your better off getting whats cheap, and investing in other parts that matter (graphic card, ssd)...between the 965, 1090t and 2500k there are some noticeable differences..but unless your gonna be doing anything that requires a lot of threading and resources, get whats cheap now to get your system going..then when bulldozer and LGA2011 come out upgrade then...thats my opinion...
some will agree, some wont..but getting a decent motherboard and 965 will be fine...plus you have money left over for an ssd and a stronger video card ..and thats where youlll get your best results...

For gaming, the 2500k. If you are really impatient, you can always buy an effected motherboard from various sites that are still selling them, and then return it once the revised boards come out.

Sandy bridge really is worth waiting for though.
