An upgrade path is not going to help OP in the mean time after it could be a year or longer and by then better CPUs and chipsets will be out. What I suggest for the reason being the PC hardware world is so volatile is to just buy what will work for you now and not on the premise of an upgrade path that will most likely not exist or be redundant or both. I say this because most people use CPUs for YEARS not weeks or months where buying solely on an upgrade path would be justified.
Yes, but if the OP is buying into a new platform why should he go with a dead one? Buy the current platform now so you don't have to upgrade until later. Both chips work great for the OP, but why buy into the dead platform choice? Doesn't make much sense to me is all.
