Default Re: ivy bridge desktop lineup details

Looking at those specs, I'm wondering if it's worth me upgrading. I'm currently running my i7 920 @ 3.6GHz very nicely. What would I actually gain by upgrading to an Ivy Bridge? I'm not going to be water cooling so probably won't want to go much over 3.6GHz anyway.

My current PC is now nearly 3 years old (graphics card is newer) and seems to be holding its own, even when compared to Ivy Bridge. I just can't remember this happening in the past - there has always been something much faster to upgrade to at the end of my usual 2-year upgrade cycle.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 | i7 920 @ 3.6GHz
