I'm not desperate to upgrade, so I don't mind waiting, but with the money I'm planing other things. Thinking on a dell U2410, a pair of good speakers and a open Headphone, upgrading to the 3770K pretty much suck my money in the process, so, unless the 3770K would be a complete game-changer in comparison to the 2600K, which it doesn't seem to, I would probably wait till early 2013/haswell.
If you can wait, then wait for Haswell. For me, I'm in the middle of my upgrade cycle and I did promise my bro that I will give him my CPU, so that's why I had to upgrade during this summer and give him this CPU before he starts university in the fall.

That and I want new toys ... duh

$190 for the 3570k $290 is for the 3770k and 50 bucks off combo deals on 3570k and z77 mb's
I'll get there this week some time for a 3570k or two plus a mb,hopefully they got a ud3 or ud5 in stock
i got those emails, was tempted once again to get the 3570 to replace my 920 but, i think i wait for now, a better gpu would go farther for me

Yup in your case i'd spend $300 on a vga before the cpu.

I really want to test ib on my p67 ud7 i hope i can get the unlocked multi to work.The 3570k ud5 combo i got wont see much time on air cooling till i get another mb and chip.

Btw
i went with the 3570k because i have alot of cores on my 3930k rig so the ht was not needed.

I clearly understand you, good luck with your new rig. I just entered graduate school this summer, in March! Best wishes for your brother
