They may push the price of a 2500k down, and make it an unquestionable buy.
You may want to revise that plan. Reports are saying the 2700k is coming in at a much higher price point, like $420. Based on the preview X79 offers zero IPC benefit over the current 1155. Just an option for a pricey 6 core, which will supposedly be available on 1155 eventually. Honestly it appears to be a totally useless platform outside of the workstation market.
Despite the sata issue 1155 should have a pretty long run as the platform of choice.
