Dont wait for a quad core, If you where to wait for something it would be the new graphics cards coming out supporting direct x10. If money is an issue you can downgrade to a 7600GS and save up for a new card when their out later this year.

DDR2-533? Get DDR2-800 or at least 667.

Apples G5 offers 2 dual core processors...that as close as you can get to real quad core before the actual release.

I've read that the performance increase from 533 to something higher is negligible.

"So it doesnÂ’t matter much what memory speed/timings you buy, the value line will suit the Intel Core 2 system just fine, but do keep one thing in mind, as in our testing we found performance actually decreases a bit going from PC4200 (533) to PC5300 (667)!"
