Wouldn't see much a leap in framerates which would be my biggest draw, not a bunch of benchmarks. I am also hoping to get my TDP way down on my next machine, at least the idle TDP. Guess I will see how it goes towards the end of the year as another one thing I really want is a SSD and they are just to expensive right now. My new keyboard and mouse will have to count as my upgrade for now :)

I hope the performance gap won't be too much so people having X58 for a while or have upgraded recently won't feel tricked.
