A simple question about timing.
I'm pretty torn apart about when I should buy a new computer. I've had this one for about four years now and it's holding me back pretty significantly.
My question is should I buy a computer this Holiday season? Or wait until windows Vista is released? Just a note that I don't even want to buy windows Vista. I just want to know how much windows Vista is going to affect technology.
I'm planning to buy a dual core and with news of quad cores I'm not sure this is exactly the right time to buy the dual core. You think quad cores are still pretty far off? I am also a gamer so I would like a DX10 card but I am not willing to spend $600 on one. I was thinking of getting something cheap (maybe a 7300 512 mb) for now and waiting a year or so before buying a DX10 card. My budget is around $1,400 and I do plan to upgrade it in the future.
So yeah. Should I wait for windows Vista or will it not be that much of a difference? I'm pretty (okay, very) eager to get my hands on a new computer and seeing how it is the holiday season I could get some pretty sweet deals.
Thanks for your input!
