EDIT: just saw that your stuff arrived already. Don't get me wrong, it'll be a screaming setup performance wise, Sandy Bridge will just be a little more screaming for the same dollar
1366 and SB isn't THAT big of a jump.. its a jump but not like if you went from 1156 to 1155.
And Sandybridge is still flawed so you have to wait on that.
His setup will be good an dfun.
My System Specs
Gigabyte P67 UD3 B3
i5 2500K (Stock)
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws
EVGA FPB 560ti
