That's about my stance. I've really not leading to replace my current system. Nothing promising from Intel on the horizon and AMD's offerings would be more of a "side-grade" than an upgrade.

Heck, I'm just hoping I can pick up a 970 through work for uber cheap come winter time. Last winter I could have grabbed one for only $85 but opted not to! Hoping they'll have the same deal this winter. Hoping it'll be paired with Intel's newer DX58 mobo so I'll be able to have 6 DIMM slots, 3 PCI-e slots, USB 3.0 as well as SATA 3.0- such a system would last me another 3 years at least.

Maybe next year Intel will release something awesome? Or the year after that?
