Hello everyone. So a little background for those of you so inclined: I've been using a computer powered by a Core 2 Quad Q6600 (at stock speed) with 4 Gigs of RAM, and a GeForce 8800GT since December of 2007, so I'm itching to build a new system. I really want(ed) to wait for Ivy Bridge and to see what kind of performance Nvidia's Kepler cards have to offer, but I realize that there's always something new just over the horizon, so I won't let myself be stuck into that waiting game. However, at this point, the game I'm most looking forward to playing on my new system is Diablo III. If Diablo III is released after Ivy Bridge, I plan to wait, if not, I'm buying as soon as I've heard a release date.
Thanks for all your time and help!
