Default Future hardware releases

Okay, I want to upgrade to a 64bit CPU SLI system towards the end of the year. Does anyone have any info on what new peices of hardware (GPUs, CPUs, Mobos) I should be saving for when they come out? I don't want to buy a 6800 right before the next big release from nvidia and be left in the dust. I want the latest components. So basically, any info on components coming out later this year would be appreciated, thanks.


WOOT!- 100th post

dual core CPU's will be coming out at the end of the year.

don't upgrade your video card for a while, that 6600GT will last you awhile.

New videocards won't be coming out for a while.

New SATAII harddrives will be coming out soon. (300MBps)

now's not really the time to ask

with new things coming out each month, SLI might be outdated at the end of the year!

512 MB video cards will probably come out this Summer. But they aren't going to be needed.

That's true, I'm thinking maybe this SLI buzz is just a fad. But, then again, why not get an SLI mobo? I can still run it with just one PCIe GPU.
