just went snb-e
 
I just ordered snb-e parts from newegg canada. Should be here by friday or early next week. Can't wait to try out the new toys. Here is what I purchased:

i7-3930 core i7 2011 processor
asrock x79 extreme 4 mb
16gb of g.skill ripjaws z quad channel ram ddr-3 2133mhz
zalman socket 2011 cpu cooler (dual 120mm fans)

got it all for about $1200 w/tax.

Sweet upgrade:drooling: I've never used an asrock board but that looks pretty nice. The active cooling is definitely a blast from the past but I like it. hope you enjoy it

that's not really an upgrade , its mostly a tad faster compared to his current system . too much overhead anyway lol . but for you CO2 ignorant people that's no problem ;)

What would be like the 4th or 5th system swap for you this year :p

your about right. from intel 980x x58 to amd phenom 2 890fx to phenom 2 990fx to intel 980 x58 to x79 core i7 3930. 5. I wish I hadn't done the amd ones though or even got rid of the 980x. anyhow, I am getting a nice chunk of change for my cuurent mb, cpu and ram that makes up for 75% of the cost of the new parts from a guy locally.

Wonder if it would be worth it for me to upgrade. =\

I'd wait until Ivy Bridge.

Very cool dude, not a lot of upgrades these days, so take pictures and lots of benchmarks for us folks that aren't upgrading for a while.

Is that still on track for end of the year/early next year?

Nice, looking forward to seeing the pics. I'll be sticking with my system for a while, the new CPU's don't offer much for me in terms of extra gaming performance which is my main focus.
