Re: Need some advice on "older" system and today's standards
Great thread. I've been itching for an upgrade for a while, and my work is sort of backing off a bit, so I have some time, but my i7 system still has plenty of punch. I'm probably hold off for Ivy Bridge or Haswell. Hmm, probably Ivy Bridge. Not sure I want to wait until 2013. But even though it's only been not quite two years since I built a new system, I feel like out of the loop.
