If you think the rumours out there excite you, try grabbing one of the special 600 series offers, which would resell for a decent amount enabling a purchase of new tech once it's available smile.gif

Currently I'm running a Msi laptop, with an i7, 560m. And 16 gigs of ram. I don't like the power I'm getting from it, so I want to build my own desktop. Selling pc parts seems like a interesting idea that I would rather not do.. After I buy this build, I don't plan on upgrading for the next 4 years. Maybe a graphics card or the ram, but definitely not the mobo and cpu

well since you are doing a fresh build, and are already at the stage where you don't like the performance you are getting from your laptop, buy now, no sense in waiting and not enjoying the benefits of a fast system.

I look at it this way, any decent build done at any time will do fine for 3-4 years, of course faster tech will be released, maybe even big leaps in performance, and insane effects, but we don't know about these yet, we haven't experienced them, it's the future and we can play with that stuff when we get there.

I suppose if something is imminent like the new AMD card, then a couple of weeks isn't going to kill you, but forever waiting for the next big thing leaves an awful empty space on your desk.

It blows the 9000 series out of the water. I would also like this computer to last 4 years. I game, and also do mild amounts of video editing

I suggest you buy something and don't look back. There will always be something new and better that's just the way technology works, if you keep waiting for the latest tech you will never buy anything because there will always be something new around the corner. but whatever you decide to buy just don't look back and be happy with it. I personally preffer Nvidia over AMD and dont mind paying the premium and couldn't be happier with my 770's so i don't regret not waiting for the 9000 series AMD cards. The 780 is a hell of a card and it would be more than sufficient for most tasks so i vote you buy the 780 and the 4770k.

This is just my opinion and should be taken as just that, so please don't start bashing me about the whole AMD vs NVIDIA argument.
