Why not go sandybridge with a 2500k/2600k? You're getting 0 performance increase with that chip, and until consoles come out that are sporting 6 core chips I doubt you will in the time that you own the chip.
Also why the H60 instead of the 80/100 on such an intense rig?
You could cut that chip, and board, and get a damn good sandy bridge WITH a 7970 and blow your current rig outta the water, or get a second 480 for sli.
Yes that's a good option. Apparently, Ivy Bridge E (also LGA 2011) will be a monster, but that's months away. In terms of bang for your buck, can't go wrong with a 2600K. Like Maverick said, that may save you enough to buy a second 7970 now.
