plus 2600k is just mainstream... i7 950 is not... so its just not cool...
I can feel either a little bit frustration or a little bit of buyer's remorse...don't take it the wrong way.

Sandy is not really targeted to people like you that own an's more for S775 users that are gamers and look for mainstream platforms in price

Sandy customers probably wouldn't buy the IVY bridge quad channel memory platform with expensive CPUs...
Rest to see how AMD Bulldozer pans out!

You have a good rig, don't worry. Sandy, even being mainstream, is a little bit faster clock for clock, and overclocks a lot more....Sandy reaches 980X in most cases, and i7 950 is NOT 980x...

Be happy with your 950 until IVY bridge comes out!
