Worth the wait?
So you may know im building a beasty computer...but I've been holding off on buying a few main parts that may be upgraded in a few months.
GTX 780's slated for a Q1 2013 release with a reported 60% performance boost over current GTX 680's depending on setup. Proposed to be same price as current 680's which would mean a price drop on the current model. If I don't wait and prices drop I may do quad 680's
Ivy Bridge-E CPU. Much like the sandy bridge variant it will be six core, and will change from 1155 socket to 2011 socket. I honestly just want the 2011 socket with ivy bridge, idc about the six cores though im not complaining. It's slated for a Q2-Q3 2013 release.
Can you imagine such a beastly computer?

Quad SLI = complete overkill.

Re: Worth the wait?
In 5 years it may not be overkill, and I could upgrade then, otherwise my obsession with having the best parts would have me dishing out thousands every year, at least having an overkill that could stand it's ground for years to come would keep that obsession at bay
