The Haswell will use a different socket

-futureproofing is impossible
-intel releases a new socket now every 2 years
-1155 is at its end.
-haswell will be on 1150
-no its not worth it. get a pc when you need one. waiting for the next would just start a new cycle
-get a good 550w such as one from xfx. 52.99 after MIR at us.ncix
-get a video card that suits your needs. i usually recommend a asus 7870 since its 222 something at us.ncix after a MIR right now.


in the end, get a pc when you need one. also please use the build template so that we can help out with configuring the PC

the 3220 uses less power, has native usb3, and pci-e 3. not quite worth 20 bucks for -5% more performance. if you dont need the case, optical drive, and the hard drive, id spend the money on getting a i5. the 2 extra cores help in multi-player bf3

-cheaper better ram out there
-better video cards like the 7870
-the sandy i3s are 20 bucks cheaper. not worth the increase to ivy if you ask me
