Maybe Haswel's chipset will actually catch intel up to AMD with the number of SATA3 ports and more USB3 as well.
If they had done something like that for the x79, I would have upgraded.
Too late, UPGRADED to a 3770k & Z77 AsRock Extreme4.
Less power, less heat, and proper Sata3 are more than enough reason to upgrade. My i7 920 was stuck at 3.8ghz unless i went to about 1.475v, this 3770k sits at 4.5ghz at 1.176.....
I got a decent price for my x58 setup so the overall cost wasn't that much. If Haswell ends up trumping Ivy Bridge then I'll upgrade again and the IB will go in my backup system.
