Default The Upgrade Plan

Im looking at upgrading my PC and putting the old stuff into my lan box (qpack).

My pc is in sig, this is what im looking to get upgrade.

Make Comments, e6600 vs e6300, wait for cheaper quads?, wait for cheaper dx10 cards? Any word on when these things come out?

The e6300 is great, only difference between it and a 6600 is they locked 2mb of l2 cache.

In mid January they will be releasing budget dx10 cards, like equivalent to a 7900gs or 7600gt.

What about a motherboard for the c2d??

Did they mention prices for these budget DX10 card, because I was thinking of upgrading similar to what blaackoran is getting except for the 8800.....just a 7950GT. But since you said mid Jan., that isn't far, so I'll just hold back upgrading the graphics. How much do you think the budget DX10s are going to be?
