were on the virge of next gen parts, wait a few months, then grab them

On that note though, if you are planning on selling your current parts to get some money out of them, ought one sell now, before the next gen comes out, cuz prices will drop?
I'm on the verge of wanting to upgrade also.

I read in the AM2 section of this forum that the new AM2 CPU will be available the 15th of may. So if you want to wait till there you can upgrade your hardrive to sata now because they will keep sata on the new chipset.


ps: I don't know how well this case is ventiled but 7800 series dissipate lot of heat so look carefully at your temps if it heat up open a side or change the case...

i'll try and narrow it down. I'm gonna keep my CPU clocked at like 2.2 instead of 2.4 like i had it and leave my GPU to 485 core and see if it does the same thing., but it'll have to be tommorrow as i've got to work tonite.
