I have a system sitting on my newegg shopping cart for $1500 with a 24'' 2m monitor..and that price includes every peripheral I need..speakers, Heatsink, all the little things included..
My old(er) box is going to a friend at a very modest price, so either way I'm upgrading. I understand quadcores are not fully utilized, but if one were to build a new box in the current market, why would they not get i7. High end C2Q's would run me very similar prices at this point and would be outdated sooner.
Is there something new coming out that I should be waiting for that I haven't heard of yet?
Thanks again Ya'll!!
