Default now? or later?

well, I've been thinking of building a computer(roughly 1000-1200) so I've been reading on what other people are doing and whatnot, but have seen mixed reactions as to whether buy the parts now, or wait for the "nex gen." stuff to come out to drive the prices down? if I were to wait, then how long should I wait? any info is apprectiated! thanks!

The cores that are probably going to crush AMD are Conroe, Merom and Woodcrest.

if intel could beat amd by their next generation processors then amd will be over, but i doubt it think about it people all those problems that an intel processors have. do you think they could resolve them that quick. i don't know about the future but right now intel is not going to beat amd even with the 65nm technolgy, new core, and all those craps.

Some guy got a test sample of a conroe cpu, it did 23 secs in the superpi 1m test at 2.7ghz.

I guess AMD is over then.
