Default Help! Feeling upgrade itch but can't justify it

I've been running my Bloomfield i7-930 @ 4.00 GHz for nearly 3 years now. I keep looking around and comparing benchmarks and I just can't find much reason to upgrade to one of the new i7s... even the i7-3770k, as nice as it is, would give me just a slight increase...barely noticeable in games which is the one thing I use it for that pushes the boundaries...photoshop, lightroom etc. are doing just fine with what I have

Everything else in my system--GPU, SSDs, etc.--is pretty well up to date... I can't remember the last time that I had a CPU last me this long...it's definitely a nice "problem" to have :)

Any worthy CPU upgrades on the horizon?
