    I am going to buy processor Intel i7 3930K
    in Q4 2011. This can be set up on 2011 socket.

    Will I be able to change only the processor
    Intel i7 3930K onto the Ivy Bridge processor that
    will be released on March 2012?
    Will LGA 2011 socket will fit for socket of Intel i7 3930K?
    I want to change only the processor without changing other
    elements of my new computer.

    Thank you in advance for help

    Just curious, but why are you purchasing a processor in 2011 Q4 you
    intend to replace in 2012 Q1, or did I just read that wrong?

    I have slow computer and I need it for rendering videos in Sony Vegas Pro
    and I don`t want to wait till Q2 2012.
    Could you answer my previous question? Will it suit to the motherboard that
    I would buy in Q4 2011.

    Thank you in advance

    Unclear at this time.

    You would hope, with the introduction of a new socket this year, it
    would be reusable next year. But with the problems they're having
    with the LGA 2011 platform, this doesn't come with a guarantee.

    Maybe you should repeat the research you've done so far, on the
    day that the LGA 2011 parts can be purchased. As then, the Intel
    Powerpoint slide sets may have been updated to reflect their latest
