Well I am building a new $1500 i5 system NOW and not waiting and I am not using older parts. But then again here are my excuses for doing this:

1. I am currently running an old AMD Athlon 2600+ machines (yikes) built years ago with a CPU bought off Ebay
2. I have never before spent a lot of money on a computer
3. I am an oldie (62 years) and will be retiring soon
4. I expect to keep the machine for several years
5. I run flight sims (FS9/FSX) and rarely even look at new games so this i5 will do fine for me
6. etc.
