I will only upgrade to Haswell if my sandy bridge at 5GHz starts struggling in games.

Probably. I'm running a SB 2500K/Z77 and an e8400/X38. I don't really NEED either. Just about any $350 box at Office Depot would meet my needs. I just love to build computers! So, yeah...prob... when they get here and I see how pretty they are and listen to y'all going on about your new Haswells... Yeah....

I built an I 2500k rig about a year ago. Money is too tight to build "just because" anymore so I am at least a year or two from a build.

Depends on performance - Ivy didn't have any gains on Sandy for my needs.

So we'll see when reviews come out

i5 760 @ 3.9ghz here. After oc'ing, I don't think it'll be upgraded anytime soon. When web browsing becomes slow, parts start to die, a fresh install of windows doesn't fix it, video card becomes bottlenecked, I'll consider upgrading.

With 16gigs of cl7 ram, I think I'll be a happy camper. Till then, the lappy has twice the ram as the main rig.

Probably not.

Considering all I do now at home is game, next upgrade will have to be CrossFireX.

Depends on how big of a gain there is over Ivy Bridge. I often skip a generation when upgrading cpu's so it would take some exceptional benchmarks for me to go to with Haswell...

Haswell may coincide with my upgrade time, the ole' Yorkfield Core 2 Quad could use a refresh...so yeah I'll most likely go with a Haswell CPU. But you never know, my thrifty side my cause me to go with and older gen processor while they clear them out of inventory to save some bucks. /shrug

Not a chance. But may still do builds with them for people. Depends on how it performs.
