Worth the upgrade AMD X6 to i7 2600

Im thinking about upgrading to SB i7 from my old AMD Phenom II X6 1090t

My specs now are

AMD Phenom II X6 1090t @ 3.8Ghz
Corsair Hydro H70 Cooler
MSI Mobo 890FXA
8GB DDR3 Adata 1600
MSI GTX 580 OC Edition

I dont know if its worth the upgrade but i feel like upgrading something in my PC right now and staying in the AMD area isnt good so ill have to upgrade anyways to intel in the near future,

on another note i think going Ivy Bridge isnt good for me because they are selling for alot of cash where i live and read about the heating problems and the performance differences from SB and SB seems to do just fine

Any tips or Ideas would be appreciated

    You may get better performance from a 2500k, but you would also have to upgrade the mobo as well. I suggest just waiting it out until Haswell next year. You CPU is still pretty good, and the GPU is very good.
