Building new PC - should I wait?

Hi,

I'm gonna build me a new PC to last me the next 2-3 years.

Is there anything good and fancy coming out this spring/summer?

Should I wait a few months or get it right now?

  1. Depends on your requirement and yes nVIDIA is rolling out its 800 series GPUs and DDR4 RAMs are expected as well.
  2. Well I'm looking for something medium-range, not too expensive, around the $1000 mark for a complete setup without monitor.

    Do you know if the DDR4 ram is coming out in spring or autumn?
  3. Yup they'll be a refresh on Intel CPU's slight bump to current Haswell's. And, there will be a Haswell-E on the 2011 socket. There is "some" talk of a faster interface for SSD drives too, but that's only a maybe at this point. The NVidia Maxwell architecture GPU's will be out, already seeing photos of GTX750 & 750Ti...
  4. Thanks for the answer jb6684.

    I saw some performance test of the 750Ti and it's slighty slower than the 660.
    I was thinking of getting the 770, so I guess waiting for the 750Ti is pointless for me?


    Also does the Haswells have any performance edge of the 3rd generation intels?

    Yeah, the 750Ti is a pretty low end Maxwell, I'd wait for the higher end models, they are suppose to be awesome... I would want at least 3Gb RAM on a new GPU, so, I'd skip the 770's. But, I'll bet they drop the prices on GTX780's when the replacements come out, I'd grab one (or two) of those in a minute.

    Yeah, Sandy/Ivy Bridge run on the 1155 pin motherboard, and I don't see Any new CPU's coming out for that motherboard so, it's dead-end. I'd certainly go with Haswell 1150 motherboard, so you might upgrade CPU in the future....
  6. Alright, thank you very much!
