    Actually, right now is a good time to not be building a PC. With so many things right around the corner, Hammer, S-ATA, USB2.0 on everything (from now on) just to name a few. And the best part is, there are no games taking advantage of the current 'best' hardware, and even as far as video editing, not much improvement will be seen, so in short, it is a good to be saving up some cash.

    Yea, well if money is no object, then you should certainly do a major upgrade every month.

    lol not every month....just every few months:p
    yea but seriously if u upgrade regularly u don;'t lose much money....for e.g when i buy an 8K3A i'll be able to sell my asus for about 130-140...or even a bit more if i'm lucky....and the 8K3A is about $180aus

    Well, you should keep track of how much you spend and then don't recover on the sale, you will find it is more than you think. But if that is what you are into, even down under has a free society. :D

    well i;ve found upgrading say every few months rather than every year or so only cost a bit more:) it;s mainly about the timing...for e.g i sold my ti500 just b4 the GF4's came out and got about 600 for it on ebay....a week later ti500 were selling for less than 400:cheers:

    well im all confused now that the nforce2 motherboard is looming - i was all intel baby - lets face it my 1.8 is clearly - faster agaist ? what the fastest amd on the market the xp2200 - which is gulp...1.8 - intel goes up to 2.53 baby with 3.0 by the end of the year

    NOW I WONT BUY A 3.0 - THATS FOOLS MONEY - BUT I WAS LEANING TO A 2.26 W/512 CASHE TO GET AHOLD OF THE 533 FSB ACTION - AND REALLY 2.26 BY THE END OF 2002 IS REALLY MIGHTY

    now theres the confusing part - it is my destiny to build a killer - possibly portable shuttle system - with a nforce2 - with a amd 1700 athlon xp right now till the k8's drop - with ddr400 support agp4x a 333fsb(how come they claim to be the first yet intels are 'higher'? sorry im dumb)usb 2.o 5.1 surround and a gforce4mx built in - seriously thats incredible stuff with a K8 and a around oh a GB of pc3200 ram

    can anyone help me decide - or talk me in or out of the shuttle pc idea- im not into wasting money! besides my video card cost more than a damn xbox or ps2 so i want my games and apps to bleed of that fat 19' black cabinet flat display monitor
