Thats a joke before you said you buy whatever is the best but then you just admitted that AMD is inferior but only because Intel's processor is newer. Eh unbiased? I leave this discussion let the ignorant remain ignorant.

If you have been following patterns in the tech industry you'll realize its ALWAYS the best time to wait. Keep waiting and you'll do nothing but wait for more technology to be released. I bought my computer in the beginning of summer, the 6600GT cost me $260 after tax, now it goes for 175, do you honestly think I would've cared to WAIT for a 6800GS? No. I used it, I got my satisfaction from it, and I still use it today, it plays all my games quite well and runs quietly. I'm a satisfied user, and I doubt I'll change anything on this computer for a good 4 years atleast.

Yes but you don't understand this isn't the regular every couple month thing. This is the start of a whole new generation. Buy a Conroe in a few months and you will be on top for a couple years.

You're wrong NeedAcpu, you will never "be on top for a couple of years" no matter what you buy! PC Tech developes way way way too quickly to say anything will stay on top for a long time. Intel101, buy that system, for the budget you have, that is absolutely perfect right now. And I agree with Zmatt, Tyler does seem to be a bit aggresive in his arguing, almost like he's a frustrated 13 year-old fighting for credibility. Nobody is saying the Conroe is bad (read the whole thread again if you like), they are just saying that for the budget Intel101 has, that is what he should get. End of story!

No, If you catch the begining of a new generation and get a good OC you can be on top for a couple years.

i dont think so. in all truthfullness the reason why amd wont have a new cpu till '07 is most likely the result of a lot of current r&d they are doing for it. the fact is its a game of oneupsmanship. intel will have a killer cpu then amd will then intel agian, you see? it dosent really matter as long as you but a stable system that has good upgrade options. just like magouster said you cant stay on top, but you can keep up with good upgrades, over time. for example my system and everyone elses was obsolete before they bought it, the only hope you have is a good mobo so you can keep up.
