One thing for sure is that I will be lowering my CPU power consumption by going IvyBridge when they arrive.
Just out of curiousity why are you upgrading the 5870? I got mine less than a year ago used, and still haven't found anything that really maxes it out. (just curious, what benefits in real life are there (if any??))
