Hey All, My current rig is getting a little long in the tooth these days so I've been looking to start fresh with a new build. And to top it off, my parents decided that the best Christmas present for me was a little piece of paper saying they would pay for my new CPU, Mobo and PSU. Now I’ve been looking around for a few months and reading various reviews to see if this is the right time to take the plunge. Now I know every thing in technology is obsolete the day you buy it and bigger and better things come out the next business day, but I'm still having a hard time deciding if the right time is now. Here are some of my questions. I have my eye on a Quad core processor. Now I'm not gonna lie, I'm an AMD fanboy, every single rig of mine has been AMD since the K6-2 days. Right now im on a Skt-939 3000+ Venice and have been happy with the overclock I have been able to achieve. I really would have liked to see the AMD quad cores come and kick intels ass, but sadly that just didn’t happen. I know I will be buying a Q6600 and I've come to peace with it. Now my question is seeing as only the Kentsfield cores are released, how long until Yorkfield and Wolfdale launch? Is it worth waiting for 45nm? Now that brings me to my next question, Which motherboard should I go with? I've been reading so many good things about the ABIT IP35 Pro and I was pretty much dead set on that board but then the ABIT IX38 Quad GT came along with its support for the new cores and now I'm not sure if now is the time to upgrade. Also a thing to consider is I do plan to overclock this rig on air cooling which is also why I am considering both boards. So to some it up: Q6600: Kentsfield or Yorkfield/Wolfdale? Mobo: ABIT IP35 Pro or ABIT IX38 Quad GT? Build a new PC right now or wait a few weeks? Thanks in advance for any responses! Also if you think there is a better option out there please let me know!
