Ok I am looking to a gaming machine I basically know what I want for the machine but....I have been thinking about getting the i5 760 and everything was so simple until I started reading about the i5 2500k which sounds freaking awesome. Here is the thing I am not just jumping into Sandy Bridge feet first because I am iffy about brand new technology being buggy and all that.....

So how long should I wait if I am worried about bugs or should I just go after the i5 760?

I'm not sure it's really possible for CPUs to be buggy. You just put the chip on the board, plug in any other peripherals and your PSU and drives, and turn it on. There won't be any incompatibilities because all peripherals are using standard interfaces (SATA, PCI-Express, etc.).

You should be fine with the new Sandy Bridge CPUs. If you have the money, get the newest tech.
