Haha. But don't you guys agree that the 8GB sticks of ram for $80 are dirt cheap? 4GB was $150 not too long ago. The CPU's at $2K each will maintain their value for at least one year, and drop slightly after that. It's going to be a while before Intel makes anything faster than this. At least 1-2 years. So I felt it was a safe investment, especially when I have other uses for it.
Sorry to ruin things for you, but Intel is already planning Ivy Bridge-EP which should be out in a years time...
That said, it's anyone's guess how much faster it'll be, but I'm sure they'll throw a few more cores at it, just because they can...
