Heck, I'm just hoping I can pick up a 970 through work for uber cheap come winter time. Last winter I could have grabbed one for only $85 but opted not to! Hoping they'll have the same deal this winter. Hoping it'll be paired with Intel's newer DX58 mobo so I'll be able to have 6 DIMM slots, 3 PCI-e slots, USB 3.0 as well as SATA 3.0- such a system would last me another 3 years at least.
Maybe next year Intel will release something awesome? Or the year after that?
Yes, I wouldn't mind USB 3.0 and Sata 3.
