It's Monday, October 18. There's all kinds of news about improvements in chips. I'm in the market for a new PC. Should i...
1) buy now. there's always something new just around the corner.
2) buy after Novemeber's announcements.
3) buy in early 2005
4) buy even later.
Is there anything wrong with your system? If there is something fatally wrong with it, waiting two or three months won't kill you.
If you can live with it a few months, buy early 2005.
Plus, if you are thinking of buying used, buy after christmas, great deals on Ebay.
don't get a whole new pc, make one, it will save you big money.
you can make a pc just like the alienware PCs for half the price, normally the alienware pc are around 5000 to 2000 bucks.
Do you know the muffinman?

The only thing wrong with my current one is speed.
...and I'd take a whack at putting a PC together but I'd be afraid of finger pointing from Maya if I didn't have qualified hardware - or does that not actually matter so much?
this site has excellent computers. one thats are faster then..ehem.. not going to go there www.apple.com
That's not entirely true. It depends on what you're putting together. You can get great deals on cheap, not-very-good computers. Celeron CPU, built-in video chip, etc... budget stuff.Originally Posted by MuffinMandon't get a whole new pc, make one, it will save you big money.
I have seen pretty good computers too in the online stores...basically they just throw some good products together and either build the computer for you or let you build it. Anyway, making your computer isn't necessarily cheaper (even though it often is). And...if you don't know how to put them together, it may be a bad idea.
As for the original question...I don't know...there are new things coming out all the time. You should read a little about it...see what's in the pipeline...and ask yourself if you would actually have any use of it. And as always...ask yourself how much you can/want to spend, how long you expect it to last (without upgrades), and most important of all: what are you going to use it for?
