A month from now is April. Haswell won't be out until June.

If you don't mind waiting a bit longer though...

Or you could just get an Ivy bridge if you are desperate for a new CPU now..

yeah i haven't really decided yet. i also want a new case some time this year.

any news about pricing on the next lineup of i7'ens?
if i buy the 3770K now and if the 4770K (lets just call it that) cost the same on release as the 3770K cost now, i will be a bit disappointed that i didn't just wait.
