hi,


I need a new pc but i dont know what to do, wait 3 months for the new processors and gpu's or buy a pc now but with a low cost cpu and gpu.
If i buy one now i can update it in the future with the new cpu's and gpu's.
I realy need advice, any comment is good.
Just tell me what you think!
My budget is around €1000, i dont need a monitor, case , speakers, keyboard,mouse.
i'm from belgium so i wont use newegg but you can always show products and i'll check the price in belgium.

You have a decent enough budget to get basically anything you want. If you want Intel, you can buy a 870/930 based system right now based on your usage. But if you're into AMD, then with that budget, waiting for bulldozer will be well worth it IMO.

You don't need a great GPU to run at 1280x1024.. XD but if your upgrading then ok..

When you say maybe overclocking is that a maybe yeah? or a maybe not?

I would wait it out and get the bulldozer :)

Its maybe yeah XD, the future games will ask more of your pc thats why i want a good gpu. I know the gpu is overkill but in the future it wont.
