Basically, everything in stock is old to me. SB is being recalled. http://www.rumorpedia.net/amd-llano-in-q2-2011-bulldoze... What's your current specs? Maybe you can upgrade some parts to tide you over to Bulldozer. WR2 February 10, 2011 1:49:43 PM Hello bubbasmith1; As sandybridge mentions any AM3 system you build now won't have a upgrade path for the new AM3+ CPUs. We can look at what you're using now and maybe find some decent upgrades that you can carry forward into a new build. The Sandy Bridge systems will have an upgrade path through at least Ivy Bridge. Ivy Bridge 22nm works with H67 and P67 Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer hmdhruvarora February 10, 2011 11:57:51 PM sandybridge said:What games do you play?

There's a choice you'll have to make b/w GFX cards. The ATI FirePro cards work better in Maya, while NVIDIA Quadro cards are the best for CUDA-accelerated apps like Adobe CS5.
