That way you never really have a slow system but it's not as time consuming and overall not really more expensive.

As with other stuff, buying cheap means buying twice.
agreed, x58 owners should just wait for proper replacement, the x68.

Intel did a smart release from business point of few first release the weaker product so people buy it, and later release the proper high-end product to people buy it again.
