    yes, but not by much though, probably 5%( with your cpu @4Ghz), i tried it @3Ghz, 3.6Ghz and 3.8Ghz and the FPS increase was lower the higher the overclock.
    I have found that cpu intensive games like BF4( 64 player servers ) and Euro Truck Sim 2 suffer more due to the cpu though but still ill wait until the end of the year before changing cpu.

    Yes if you are running a resolution of 1280x720, nice graph there jaredpace :)

    You'll be OK with your CPU. Yes, if you got a Haswell running @ 4.5ghz or even a SandyBridge @ 4.5ghz, you would see an improvement in some situations but if you are running at 1080p, most of the time you will be GPU limited.

    My recommendation is go for the 780ti and enjoy. Wait for the Haswell-E release and pick up a 6 core cpu which should be sufficient for many years of gaming.

    Think there will be affordable hexa-cores this time around, with the Extreme Edition being octa-core? I'm really hoping.

    Yes, I really hope so too. I'm definitely prepared for it to cost more than the 4820K but if it is in that kind of area, I'll be very tempted to go for it.

    Slightly more than the 4820K and I'd be all over it.

    I doubt it, it think it will be around the same as current 6cores, so ~ 450€..

    Yes you would x58 is a dead socket now. Still an extremely strong socket though even today and that is a 2009 socket.

    Atm it will run like your 480GTX SLI system, probably 10-15% faster. With a new cpu add another 10-40% faster once OC'ed, depends on the title, cpu bottleneck games (Hitman AA, BF4, HardReset, X3TC, MMOs,..).

    There were no i5 on x58. They all had hyperthreading.
