My cousin wants to build a PC. I told him to go my route, wait untill next year that way when Intel releases the next gen. CPUs the prices of current i7 and Phenoms should go down. Out of curiousity how long will Intel continue to produce current CPUs after Sandy Bridge is released? Or will they flat out stop producing them. If Sandy Bridge is a major improvement (which it seems like when I reed articles about it) I plan on upgrading right away from a Phenom II X3 720 BE unlocked 4th core. If it's a dissapointment I'll just try to pick up a 2nd hand i7-9XX and a EVGA Classified board. So what you guys think of my plan?
