Well your right, I need to bite the bullet and upgrade now. What do you guys recomend though, wait until the new Intel release or get a decent setup now?
Will the new CPU's use a different socket?
I don't want to spend a fortune for it to be obsolete in a few months, I know thats the risk you take with high end PC gear but if it's a major update such as this then holding off a little while might be well worth it, just means I have to be a little more conservative with the in game settings for a little while.
