    Nice find Hilbert , ~6-8 Months more to wait for Haswell to be out for full retail channel (eg: newegg).

    It appears one option at least has 6 SATA3 ports, although going by the others on the list it appears Intel are relying on board manufacturers to provide third party SATA3 solutions.

    If I were you I would wait it out but if you have money burning a hole in you pocket go for it.

    With that system I would probably wait. You would at least need a new motherboard, cpu, and RAM. I list RAM because otherwise you would have to downgrade to 8GB.

    Probably a much better upgrade in the meantime will be do the HD8970 when it comes out. Going by the information available so far, it looks to be one sweet card! You can then sell of the HD7970, and put that towards a sweet Haswell system.

    I think I will wait for Haswell after all, it will be very tough not to give in to temptation though lol

    And hell no I only just got this HD7970 and its a freaking beast. This card will last me at least another 2 years. May upgrade to crossfire after 1 year when the cards are dirt cheap.

    Even though Haswell is better upgrade for x58 owners unless i see more demanding games that require this new architecture ill be sticking with my 930 as there will be no need to upgrade it and i also cba with the time and hassle of doing it.

    As soon as my rig starts struggling ill upgrade right away.
