Default What's my Next Move?

Hey, what do you guys think my next move should be as far as upgrading in the next 5 months? Hit up the poll. I really don't know what to focus on..

Even though I voted for the G80 you cant predict whats going to happen in 5 months so for all we know the G80 and AM3 cpu's wont be out. I would either get a second 7900gt or the gb of ram if it turns out its not. By then a e6300 wont be so highly rated IMO.

YA i know the 5 month thing was a little short. I still think the e6300 will haul A when Oc'd for its time. I mean my 2.0 AMD barely hits 70% usage. Go figure.

I fail to see why it needs upgrading, a PC should only be upgraded because it starts showing it's age. That thing is a freaking virgin
