My System Specs

I'm planning to just upgrade the mobo+cpu+ram, probably add in an SSD. However I think the rest of my stuff can stay. Should I grab the upcoming ivybridge? Or wait till that drops and pick up the cheaper sandybridge options then.

Any suggestions as to what I should upgrade too?
Ivy would be the way to go, but I would upgrade your 4850 video card as well if you are going that route. At least a gtx 570 or 6970 would be ideal.

I'm sure there will be some 2500k/z68 combos coming available in the coming month as the new Z77 stuff arrives,So you should be able to pick up a sandybridge mobo/cpu and maybe even a gtx 570 or something from the BST for a decent price. Also, +1 for the ssd, crucial m4's or vertex 3 or the intel 520's are on the top of my list.
