When to buy my new processor...
I've been holding off buying a new processor for a while, the P4 2.8 Northwood handles everything reasonably well, but I'd like to do a fairly major system upgrade in the next couple months. I've been back and forth between some of the mid-range, overclockable Intel dual-core chips (high $100's on newegg) vs the slightly more expensive athlon 64 x2 3800 (high $200's on newegg). However, some recent articles shed some light on new processor technology from both companies set to hit later this year, as early as fall. Just looking for some opinions, nothing urgent...
What would everyone do in this case? Is there something fantasic right around the corner worth waiting for, or is it just another small jump in processor tech?
Thanks for the help!
