Hi all,

Im in need of a new system desperately. However I have read that the new intel processor(nehalem) is due out pretty soon. Should I go ahead and build my PC now or should I wait for the release to build a kick ass system. thanks in advance.

Id go ahead now, there will always be better out there. Besides Nehalem is going to be very expensive and aimed at servers with very little performance gain in gaming. Wait for the 32nm verson.

Well, with the new processors coming out, the processors that are out now are gonna drop in price, but probably only by like 50 dollars. But hey, maybe even the socket 775 mobo's are gonna drop in price, so who knows.
