Default Re: CPU / Mobo / RAM Upgrade Worth It?

I would personally say no and to wait until this coming year for Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer.

These chips should show up in mainstream PCs early next year, he said, and in more platforms over the rest of 2011 and 2012. AMD's first "fusion" processor, based on its Ontario processor, is expected at around the same time, though Intel seems to be offering more CPUs cores and is on a smaller process (32nm vs. 40 nm). Obviously, we won't really be able to compare until we see final systems.

Of course, it's hardly a given that things will go to plan for AMD. After all, this new architecture, known as Bulldozer, was supposed to be on sale last year. At best, we'll see it early in 2011
