How does Sandy Bridge i7 compare to the new Ivy Bridge i7? Spec comparision would be most useful.

Is it worth waiting for the Ivy Bridge to come down in price?

Ivy won't come down in price. It beats sandy but only by a minuscule amount; so little that it makes no difference. Sandy or ivy i7 are awesome but only worth it if you are into apps like video editing, 3d modelling or simulation. If its just games you're after then get an i5
 
No. Just no.^

First of all, there is barely any difference between the i7-2600k and 3770k. Roughly 3-5% on average of performance difference in all applications.

The HD 3000 is perfectly fine for a common user.

PCIE 3.0 does nothing for current cards.
