My System Specs

Default wondering..

I think i may have posted this in another section earlier, not too sure. I've been thinking about turning my current system into a basic use/folding system and putting together a gaming system. I'm wondering is it worth it to build an i7 system right now? Or is there newer stuff coming out soon that i should hold off for?

Socket 775 will still be around for a little while and I think I7 will be around for at least a few years. Personally, If I had the money available I would build myself an I7 system without batting an eye.

If you can afford an i7 rig, most definitely. If not, the Quads are still very powerful. And I game / Fold on them.

I know, I have both.
