You could wait till K8l, then see what intel is goin to do against that, then wait for that, then see what AMD is goin to do about intels anti-K8l......... and keep waiting.... new tech always comes out.... and fast...... so dont wait to long..... and remember, any modern CPU out (s939, AM2, most of s775) will run anything you throw at it

IMO Get your rig at the end of summer, cept dont dish out $300+ for a video card, grab a nice 6600GT or X1600XT or maybe a X1800GTO, just something cheap that'll play games, then when the new cards come out, grab one of those.

Also, if you get conroe and an i975x chipset mobo, i guess ATI is givin out $60 rebates on their X1900 Mastercards so it'd be a good chance for cross-fire. Their also suppose to lower prices on the 1900 mastercards too . Now that i got my new OCZ GameXstream 600W PSU and should be gettin my X1900XT tomorrow, i think i might go CF with a RD600 mobo in august or so(AM2 or conroe, havent decided, i wanna see if AMD has anything up their sleeve with AM2)...... plz no flaming!
