I was wondering whether the older generation line of Core i processors from Intel - Sandy Bridge are still relevant. My opinion is that it's still worth it. What about you guys?

only if

a) it's the only intel CPU in stock
b) the shops where you're from are selling Ivy Bridge at a ridiculous price over Sandy.

depends on the price. if you can get it for a discount, yes. but most pricing i see the ivy bridge chips are so close that i would just go for the new tech.

yes and no.
if you can get the sandy bridge for a lower price then a ivy bridge then yes (but only if there is an big gap between the sany an ivy bridge not like a 10$ gap)
no, sandy bridge is older and proforms a bit less then ivy bridge so if there is almost no difference in price go ivy
