Hello. From what I hear the release date for Ivy Bridge is the 23rd of April, so about a week away. I have a phemon ii x4 that I was going to upgrade to a 15 2500k but I was told I should hold of a couple of months for the ivys. So there is my questions. Well, I am unsure what to get. I suppose I want to get the ivy version of whatever is closet to the 2500k, but I am not sure what that is. I was told that they ivy's will be around the same price as the sandy's, is this correct? My last question would be, are the ivy's a 1155 socket? If so, will I be able to buy any mobo that is a 1155 socket and have it work fine? Thanks for you help, I just want to make sure I make an educated purchase.
