I'm glad I sold up my PC in last march, skipped Ivy.

 

Now I'll finally rebuild using Haswell in July =D

Me two :D Can't wait!

(2 x 7970s on their way too!)

I'll end up going from my locked i7-960 to the 4770k

Do you think there would be much benefit upgrading from Nehalem (i7-920) to Haswell?

huge.

well it could be ~50% quicker while using about half the power lots of small steps in ipc have added up over the years along with the added bonus of higher clock speeds

Pretty much, anything post-nehalem probably not worth it, but a jump from a 920 to a Haswell would be just nice I think,

yep it should be more than twice as quick as a q6600 looking at just how much better the 3570k is in those anandtech benchmarks

Yeah, I'm committed to keeping my current rig until she dies. I'm rather impressed at my self-control over the last few years, must be old age.
