Technically true, but only if you were needing the extra performance to begin with. I am still amazed at how much it takes to bog this 3570K down, and I have a friend with a 2500K that will say the same thing.
I will, of course, have to wait until Haswell comes out to see for sure if it is a viable upgrade path from Sandy Bridge, because I'm not sure it is currently. On average, computer components are viable and longer-lasting than just a few years ago.
Ultimately, it is up to the user on whether or not to spend the cash upgrading.......we can just point out facts and speculate lol!
