My upgrade budget is fixed. If my x-amount will by y-setup now and z-setup is better but can be bought for the same price as y if I wait a bit longer, then I don't mind waiting another 2-4mos. By then Vista will be out, DX 10 cards will be out and core2 prices might be lower!!!
P.S. In forums, just like in the real world, I'll decide who I "like" and/or can relate with and who I don't want to deal with. The people I'm dealing with can of course make the same decision!

Yes C2D will be cheaper by then (modern CPUs anyway) but then you run into the problem that Vista is gonna set you back a few hundred bucks....a HUGE PSU will set you back another few hundred bucks...and a DX10 card will set you back at least $400....

So just vista and dx10 alone will almost $1000.....

interesting situation you are in though. Do you just set urself a specified amt of $$ you use to upgrade PER hardware generation or....

Though people often complain about lengthy waits for PC game releases, these hiatus' offer savvy consumers the opportunity to thoroughly profile titles prior to purchase. An individual can then compile a list of games they wish to play and invest in hardware that will adequately run those games. That is what dictates what I buy and How much I'm willing to spend. Here's my shortlist: Elder scrolls, HL2fran., Prey, 2142, UT2007, Crysis, Bio-shock.

So you are building this rig at the MOMENT for these specific games. Forgive me, but in the context it just makes it seem as if you are never going to upgrade your PC...like you are going to build your PC initially but then let it stay at that idle performace until the next gen comes out? I am just curious is this is what you mean but your prior few posts....
