I was wandering around OCN for quite some time until now, but i decided to make an account because i couldnt find anything about this question.
So this is very simple: i finaly decided to make myself a gaming build, but i wanted something that is very solid and will last me at least 2years perfectly (I do not want to struggle with anything) but of course nothing expensive.(Titan/690 etc..)i've had my eyes on an i5-3570k + Sapphire 7970 Vapor-x Ghz and i have read nothing but positive reviews about this combo, so i really made up my mind until...i read that The new generations of everything will come out soon this year..i will only make my purchase by june anyway but i have these things i need to know:
-The price tag for the new series will be similar?( aka 3570k=4570k / 7970=8970 )
-We all know that the sapphire model for the HD 7970 Ghz is superior to others, so what i want to know is, will we see some custom designs coming out early as well? ( from the reference release )
-Will the HD7000 Series still benefit from driver coverage after 8000's release?
So is it worth waiting (and probably extra cash) for the next series?
Thanks for everything )
