the wait is driving me nuts too, I'm actually considering a AMD FX-6200 on a gigabyte GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3, and then upgrade to ivy in May, if my performance/power consumption isn't what I'm looking for. I wouldnt be happy with the AMD build, but nor happy with sandy bridge. I'm also considering 3820 on an ASRock Extreme4, but cost is $200 more than AMD. The last option is buy an ASRock Z77 board in early April w/ an inexpensive sandy bridge(like the i3-2130), then just upgraqde my proc in May to the i5-3750k or i7-3770k. here is my build...any advice?
