I bought my i7 2600k in June of 2011 & it retailed for $314.99.

The same CPU on Amazon today is $279.99. That's some staying power.

I've been running it at (just shy of) 4Ghz since it's inception with zero instability.

I'd love a new system, but it's really difficult to justify when this thing is still chewing up what I throw at it. I have no doubts the current gen is faster & more efficient, but I have no complaints.

I also hope that AMD catches up with Intel - they need some competition & it's good for the industry.
I was nerdy before it was cool to be nerdy.
