I'm looking at either geting a cpu/mobo combo (the mobo doesn't like my windows 7 64bit) and spending under 250~ to wait it up till next summer OR just buying a 100-150~ cpu (quad core I'd assume) to last me till next may or so.
I mostly surf the net, photoshop (for fun, nothing major) watch movies, edit music, game and not much else.
Is it worth the couple hundred for hte performance increase now (another 9-12 months) or should I just wait for prices on the i7/i5's to drop and build a new system next summer?
