Not worth it....especially not now....maybe in a year's time or so from now, just a few months before SteamRoller comes out, could get one of these PD chips for cheap :)

Too soon to really tell, have to wait and see what Haswell can do. Intel will have it online before AMD is scheduled to drop Steamroller.
