Well, I dont care, because i dont need the "newest parts" when they come out. I don't care about future proofing my rig, I want what runs NOW and is considered the best NOW. I dont care about then. I can work around that.
By the time I get that kind of money, I know there will be better chipsets than the 780i even, Octo-core processors will be a possibility (dual quad cores, anyone?) and Tri and mabye even Quad SLI will be ready. I would also like to see the 4GB DIMM's..
And WTF are you talking about, D-Lew, a $10,000 dollar rig could run just about anything if you get the right parts.
