    Would love to upgrade my rig! Need help please!

    Today I got a nice rise at work. So I now have some extra cash to spend. Now I'm looking at my rig and wondering if I should upgrade it or not. SB is so damn nice and I would like to jump in but not sure it's really worth it. Ivy bridge is coming soon though. This is confusing!

    So I need suggestions. Budget is $600 this time around. What does one do? CPU, mobo and DDR3 memory. Possibly a new GPU too.
    CPU: Core i7 3770K @ 4.7 GHz
    Mobo: Gigabyte z77x-UDH5
    GPU: HIS IceQ X 7970
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB DDR3 2133
    PSU: PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III Series 750W
    Cooling: NZXT Havik 140
    Case: Fractal Design Define R4 W/Window Arctic White
    SDD: Crucial M4 128 GB
    HDD:WD Caviar Black 1TB (Storage)
    OS: Windows 7 Professional

    Bulldozer is just weeks away from being released. At least wait until then, compare against SB and decide for yourself.
