I would say just buy now and get either a wolfdale dual core or any quad. Also if you wanna wait and see about prices/price drops thats always a good option. also whats the intended use of this comptuer?
the obvious basics, but also gaming. im betting we could get the budget stretched to $1500. is 900 enough for everything else? or would it make a lot more sense to buy the discounted current generation stuff when nehalem comes out? i would think that waiting for a 2nd generation of nehalam to come around would be the smartest thing to do anyways... like the q6600's go stepping...
