I kinda feel the same way, but I've been extremely irritated with this system from time to time...I'd like to replace it with Kaveri but I'm not sure I really need to spend the money when I'll have a PS4 soon.
I'm going to stick with my i7 920 till it dies. Intel will probably be talking about it's i7 7770 chips by then.

Release Ivy Bridge-E or "Intel, go home".

the point of haswell is its power efficiency more than performance. the igp only has 4 more execution cores,what did people expect? haswell will allow thinner,lighter,cheaper, less power hungry and more powerful tablets and notebooks. devices like the surface pro and acer w700 will cost beginning at $599,have all day battery and be thinner and lighter.

That would be sometime around 2016, if their current pacing is any indication.
Well, I'd rather they release Haswell-E.

I'm still on a q9400, but if i do an upgrade this year, it will probably be hanswell ... i'm waiting to see the the price points.

I tend to agree with what PGHammer has said above me (if no one else posts before I do )
Not much of an increase. Should I stick with getting a 3770K for my new build then?

3. Going by the initial benchmarks, Haswell will target the high end of portable computing and servers more so than general computing - especially given the high prices of Haswell at launch and price cuts hitting Ivy.
Save your money - stick to Ivy Bridge.

See my post.
I only do a build every 5 years or so so I'm not entirely in the loop, but wouldn't haswell be more future proof in terms of chipset for upgrades down the road?
