Default My New Computer..

Should i wait to buy one or build one now,,

I dont know if i should wait for Penyrn 45nm Quad, DisplayPort, and Nvidia 9 Series..

I am going to do a little gaming like Everquest 2, and Conan Hyborian Adventures.. and Counterstrike Source, Half Life 2 ect..

And i would probally need help choosing pieces and from what store, i will be able to build it though.. Thanks trev


I got 1,250-1750 to spend.. I wanna make it the best bang for your buck and cheap.

It's always a good time to buy a new computer. In all honesty, I wouldn't wait if I were you. The processors are not going to be cheap when they're released initally. As of right now, you can get an 8800 GT and Q6600 that are selling for really cheap. Put those with some good ram and a good motherboard, and you will have an awesome system for not so much money.
