But isn't ivy bridge supposed to replace the current 1366 socket, which means its going to cost a ton to get. Where as sandy bridge is plenty fast and pretty future proof, not to mentions it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to buy.
Hold off for now...gaming won't be worth the $$$$$$$$ investment vs gainsOriginally Posted by reezin14;11997629
I'm contemplating the same thing,I but I do run multiple apps & such at the same-time plus gaming.So if I'm not going to see that much of an improvement I might just hold off,and just upgrade the gfx's card.
Thanks man. Those are some ensuring words. Now the question is... is the 580 worth the extra $$$?Originally Posted by B!0HaZard;12000082
I wouldn't go for an i5, your current CPU should do fine. It depends on what games you play of course, but I can't imagine that quad limiting you in much else than StarCraft 2, but that's just because it's not quad optimized. And based on my experiences with my dual + HD 5850, I doubt your quad will bottleneck even a GTX 580.

I had E6750 @ 3.3GHz and HD4850 and never saw any GPU bottleneck ..Originally Posted by starpwnage;12000496
My E6850 @ 3ghz (dual core) bottlenecks my gpu in some games.
