Man up and get! dont wait!
i would get a quad now, but i just dont have the money.
I have $220 right now, and about to get $145 for the gigabyte i returned if the RMA gets approved. which totals me to $365. and i need a CPU, Motherboard, PSU, and Case.
All those cost about $50+ each. The motherboard i am planning to get is the XFX 680i LT Sli for $100, a PSU for about $80, and a case which is another $80, which totals me to $260, which leaves me with $105, and its less than how much the quad cost. I might get a cheap PSU and case for $100, but only if the PSU is good, the PSU comes with the case.
which then leaves me $180, which is still not enough. I am trying to sell my Laptop HDD for $60, and 4800+ Cpu for $40, and its taking awhile to be sold, its listed at craigslist though.
EDIT - hmmm, seems like AMD got a price drop recently, now when is it going to be Intel's turn? unless they already went down in price.
