The last time I upgraded was in 2008, few days before Nehalem came out. So I have been stuck with 8-Gig machine and other limitations of pre-i7 era.
Is now a good time to upgrade CPU and mobo, or are we days away from another significant leap?
With the success of tablets, windows 8, touch screen and even the success of kinect I'd imagine we're starting to see the end of the PC as we know it. We'll probably need all new hardware, Its' probably about 5 years away mostly because companies still want to sell their inventory but the point is if you want to upgrade now is a perfect time as it'll give you a few years til you'll need to upgrade
