Waiting is never bad, but if you're going to upgrade now, that rig seems fine. I'm always afraid of upgrading/building a new system, and then before I know it, there's new stuff/cheaper old stuff. >_>

But if you use that strategy, you will never actually upgrade lol.

I upgrade my comps regularly. About once in two years does the trick for me. And I get new graphics once every half-year.
