My System Specs

Default Should I jump to i7?

well, I just upgraded a number of parts on my machine already (Case, Extra Ram, Graphics Card's, PSU) But, right now, the EVGA Classified mobo is calling my name... and I'm really wanting it so, I'm really just wondering if I should or not... what I would get is this...

NCIX.com - Buy EVGA X58 Classified EATX LGA1366 DDR3 4PCIE-16 1PCI SLI SATA2 eSATA Dual GBLAN 1394 Motherboard - 141-BL-E760-A1 In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair XMS3 Dominator GT CMG6GX3M3A2000C8 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-2000 CL 8-8-8-24 Core i7 Memory Kit - CMG6GX3M3A2000C8 In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Intel Core I7 920 D0 Stepping Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 -SLBEJ- - BX80601920 - D0 In Canada.

These are my current specs:

Antec 1200
EVGA 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM
Intel Q8400 Quad Core CPU OC'd to 3.66 Ghz (stock is 2.66)
8 GB DDR3 1600 ram from OCZ
Graphics Card's: EVGA GTX 260 Core 216's in 3-way SLI
PSU: Corsair hx1000w
HDD 1: 2 x 500GB Seagate's running in RAID 0
HDD 2: 1 TB seagate
HDD 3: 160 gig seagate for... stuff
CPU heatsink: Zalman 9700

My question is... do any of you think it would be worth it? Or should I just wait for something bigger and better that's most likely gonna come out in the next year?
