Default Re: Ivy Bridge worth upgrading from I7-980X EE?

you would see only minimal gains if any. The only interest is if you can get a good price on your current system, as your CPU used to sell for $999, but I'm not sure what it would sell for now.
Even an i5 3570K would be better, overclock better and be *MUCH* cheaper.

So, if you can sell your system for more than your upgrade cost and you have the time and energy to do that, I'd say go for it.
