I have a woefully underpowered desktop, and I was wondering whether I should build a new one now, or just wait it out, and build 3-4 months later. I have a commitment of ~$500 to books for school, and I will make an additional ~$1000 on top of the $500. I was wondering, whether I should set aside the $500 now, and build a new rig later, or if I should just save up another $500 and then build the rig, and then pay my obligation later. My real worry is that in the 3-4 months time that I'll make the cash that tech will already be ahead of me if I do a build now. So that's why I wanted to build later. What do you all think?
The longer you wait you might have a better chance of future proofing the PC, but of course so people put things off for to long and end up not doing it. I would say if you really want a computer I recommend $800.00 to make a nice build for you. Its just up to you all I can say is if you want a build now just tell use on Tomshardware your location and budget and possibly what your looking to get out of this build or PC.
