Hey guys just wanted your opinions if its even worth upgrading now to X79?
Would it be better to wait till April for Ivy Bridge? the new Intel 3000/X79 series cpu's are quite expensive compared to the 2000/Z68, and from the reviews not that much faster.
What are your thoughts?

Depends on how rich you are and what you use your system for. I don't imagine you'll get your money back if you sell an x79 system, so I would wait for ivy bridge. Maybe someone else will sell the e series at a discount then and you can pick up a bargain.

Thanks for that , looks like Intel is just trying to stretch the life out of Sandy Bridge with the E series, will wait for Ivy , thanks for your advice.
