I am into gaming and programming. Should I jump the bandwaggon and go for a a i52500k or wait a month and go for Ivy Bridge?
Ivy Bridge is is due out April 29th along with the new Z77 and Z75 boards. Personally I would wait a month for it all to be on the shelves. http://www.asrock.com/microsite/PCIe3/overview.html

<---- Those are Asrocks Z77 and Z75 board line up so far...although they are going to add more boards here soon. Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI also have their boards ready to go. They all get released with Ivy Bridge.
