Yeah, same here. Dying for a good MMO/Sim game. Wish it would get here sooner. Although, it may get here just in time for my Haswell-E build! It'll double as a form of entertainment and a excuse to upgrade my rig. haha

So, how many of us have invested in Star Citizen so far? I just added a 300i ship to my base donation. Have any of you preemptively joined a squadron?

Yeah, I've decided to wait until Haswell-E until I build my next rig. There honestly aren't any upcoming video games coming out that allow me to justify any further investment into my PC. I think my next investment in gaming will be either a PS4 or XB1. Just for a change of pace until the HW-E's launch. 

However, I would love to purchase some more of those Samsung memory modules, if I ever find them on newegg that is.

I guess my concern is coming from my experience with this 3570k. When I'm playing a game or loading some larger flash apps on a Web site my streaming media [hulu or wmc cable card tuner] will stutter. That's something I assumed a beefier cpu would rectify. Am I incorrect?

Thanks for the replies. You guys are definitely not enabling my addiction, lol. Coming from a 920, my roommate is looking at a 4770k with a 250$ asus m/b running him 600$ for the combo. If the new bottom of the barrel IB-E ends up costing 350$ added a $300 m/b, would it not be smart or beneficial to spend an extra 50-100?

Looking at games like crysis and battlefield miltiplayer, wouldn't the extra power on the 4 and 6 core chips be beneficial? I read the new id engine will be utilizing upto8 cores.
