Probably going Intel this time around. I'm not going to be building it anytime soon, but within the next 6 months or so. I've been out of the loop CPU wise. Anything new and exciting coming out that I should be aware of or is there something now that's amazing I should he keeping an eye on?

Is Haswell a lot better than Ivy?

Nope. Not "a lot" at all, but roughly 5%-10%. Most Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge users are not updating for obvious reasons. Some are upgrading. You might as well go with Haswell since 1155 is dead.
