I know no one can really know the answer, but I am sure someone such as Xion X2 could steer me in the right direction. I am debating to go ahead NOW, for 690 bucks and grab the I7 920 + the EVGA X58 board, and some DDR3 RAM, and a new PSU and maybe just hold off on upgrading my video card till Fermi comes around, however I do not want to upgrade my processor if its going to be able to handle fermi and play most games. As my Q6600 is fast at doing anything I do now.
I recommend waiting honestly.
Save your money.
