i dont think it was TF's choice though I may be wrong. Vbulletin which powers this forum prob made that choice
edit: and to stick more to this topic, i'm a firm believer of buying now b/c technology is constantly changing, but i think right now is slightly a different case. with dx10 and vista compatibility blah blah, theres a lot of new technology thats going to be focused around these changes.
BUT, i think that that only speaks for video cards mainly with dx10. the dual cores i think will last a while. yes the new quad chips will be more powerful (AMDs more so than the intel quad) but as for buying a new comp the new mobos with faster FSB clocks are nice for OCing.
BUT -- if you plan on buying a comp right now my recommendation goes, buy reasonable power. get whatever you want for mobos/cpus/psus/soundcards/case(a full tower tho)/ram(if you OC remember you have to spend a bit more)/+everything else.
as for vid cards get a 7xxx or the ati's X and just wait around christmas or early next year to really invest.
