Default Tons of new stuff coming out

With Dual core being released shortly and SLI been released not too long ago. And now this PPU talk its making me wish i hadnt made my comp now.

All this new stuff looking nice, but looking mighty costly. Im just wondering what a dual core board that supports SLI is gonna cost.

I can tell you one thing tho it wil lbe too much for me.
