Then new M2 chips wont be out untill '06....who's going to put off their plans to build for 4-6 months just because something better is comming out. Something better will always be just around the corner so you might as well build now if you have the money.

The computer I have right now can't play ANY current games so I'm building now.

HP Pavilion XE813. It has an Intel Celeron proc. and I'd have to look around to find the rest of the specs but I'm sure I have no prayer of upgrading this machine enough to handle BF2 or FEAR.

I checked DX Diagnostic and I have a Pentium III ~768MHz, 126MB of RAM, and as far as I know it uses onboard graphics, w00t!

agreed on the home computer makeover bit... You could cheap out like me and get everything barebones, but upgradable! cheapest 939 processor w/ a good mobo, and then a cheap pci-e video card to temporarily fill the gap till we all get 7800gtx's for $5 a piece!
