  1. 6-8 weeks is not "soon."
  2. ive been planning on getting one fore two years and now have decided im actually going to buy one sorry if it seems long to some people...
  3. Well the reason is that in 6-8 weeks everything will change. Ivy Bridge will come out (New Intel Processors), new motherboards, possibly the rest of Kepler (nvidia). Why don't you post back a week before you're going to buy to see what the next month brings us?
  4. ok thats actually not a bad idea because ill probably have a higher budget then also... haha sorry for the trouble i guess i really have no reason to plan this far ahead
  5. No problem. I know how you feel. I just built my first one also, been waiting a long time to get my own computer. It's normal :)
  6. Check my sig for suggestions.
