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/mb/index.asp?s=1155 <---- 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.

If you can wait a month than wait, not much else to say.

I can wait a month but I read that intel won't be releasing the whole processor lineup untill the summer. I hope intel releases its brother to the i52500k. I guess it goes without saying good things come to those who wait.

The Ivy Bridge cpu's that got delayed are the ones for laptops, and low end desktops. It's on Intel's website along with a zillion other sites.
