The Core i5 760 is still a good processor. You're not looking at 2X the performance compared to a similarly priced SB processor anyways. I'd suggest that you keep using your Core i5 760 and skip this current generation and upgrade only when Haswell comes out around 2013 which most probably will be using another new socket design making LGA1155/1156 obsolete.
