Jump to AMD but you may still "get burned" (some people think like that, I don't), like this AM3+ business.Am I wrong it observing that 1366 hasn't seen a major refresh since the initial launch, only that 1,000 dollar six core? The whole line is still kinda chillin 2 years later?

I'm extremely impressed with Sandy Bridge and I'd love to have one, but there's nothing I do that would make the upgrade worth it or even noticeable. I just plain wouldn't notice it! I can't rightly spend $500 and not be able to notice the difference. Heck, my 955 BE is running at stock. A 5770 runs games just fine for me at 1600x1200 so I don't need to upgrade that either. What I do need to upgrade is my storage.
