Looking to upgrade my system within a month or two. I was curious if any new hardware is coming out soon, or perhaps any pricedrops?

I have heard comments around the web about waiting until september for building anything new, not sure for what reason though. I did noticed ram prices are dropping :p 

My current system soon to be upgraded:

Processor: AMD Phenom II X3 720 - (unlocked x4 @ 3.2ghz / 92mm Xigmatek cooler)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P

Graphics: HIS IceQ 4+ HD 4870 - 1gb

Ram: Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

Case: Cooler Master HAF 932

What type of upgrade are you looking for? Your CPU is up to date, and your GPU isn't bad either, what speed boosts are you looking for? Gaming/FPS boosts or DVD encoding/video editing type etc. boosts?

well there is new hardware being released constantly.

ATI has recently announced their new generation of GPUs, but who knows when they will be released. we also have Nvidias newer GPUs coming out, which are expected to fix the heat and power issues many of the cards have suffered from.

CPU wise, the new AMD Hexcores have been released, and are very reasonably priced. but the next big thing wont be til bulldozer is released next year.

if you really want an upgrade, i would recommend grabbing a HD5850 for now, which would run fine with your current CPU. then see how things are going with the HD 6xxx series and bulldozer next year.

to be honest though, your current system is still quite capable. you don't need to upgrade. but i understand we don't always upgrade because we need too...

thx for the info, good advice <3

I'll consider the 5850 and keeping everything else for now VS waiting it out for new 6000 series gpu... hrm

Dell Introduces Precision Laptop With 32GB RAM

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/precision-mobile-lapto...


I tried to configure this mobile workstation with 32GB of RAM,
but that option was not available (or I just didn't look hard enough).

The specs keep referring to "DIMM" slots, NOT to SO-DIMM slots,
so I must assume that this Precision M6500 uses standard DDR3 DIMMs.

That raises the question: where is Dell getting 8GB DDR3 DIMM sticks,
for a total of 4 x DIMM sockets?

Anybody know?
