I have learned my lession. (On serveral occasions)
The lession I speak of is not to buy crappy components.
So heres what I am thinking.
I want to build a new computer but not for another two years. I want to save up around 1.5K to 2K. I will Keep my Case, Moniter and Case Fans, and possible my optical drives IF that hasn't changed much. As for my old setup, It may become a F@H PC, but its more likely that ill Part out and sell as much as possible for cash.
The reason for the two year gap is VISTA. I haven't read much on it, but I do know its hella buggy. The other reason for this two year wait is for technology. I know there will be a ton of new "items" by then.
I love Farcry and this crysis game looks awesome. So by then I hope VISTA will be "sufficently" patched up and hardware prices will drop so I will be able to play Crysis on max settings. I also hope by then that major bugs will be fixed in crysis.
Online gamming is not really a concern for me, so it doens't really factor in my decision.
I have the Money now, but I think it would be better to wait for alot of the New OS's, (Vista) and Games (Crysis), and hardware to come out and be patched up. My other concern is VISTA and windows EULA and "New security" features. If you get my drift......
Comments? I DO NOT keep up on tech news so prehaps people could enlighten me On new PC technology comming out.
I know of or have heard of:
Quad Core CPU's Or more
PCIE 2 and or 3
Multiple GPU Grahpic cards
Biological harddrives (Ok maybe not close to commercial use)
Should I wait longer because of VISTA Issues?
