I'm 100% sure I understand what you are getting at... are you saying the GPU i the bottleneck in the system or the CPU? I know the CPU is the bottleneck since it is not being used properly YET. I bought it because software will grow into it... I have owned a computer store or at least worked in one for the last 12-13 years, so I'm pretty up with what is going on in terms of hardware advancement. I bought now because we are half way through the 7 year technology phase... this PC should last an easy 3 years without any upgrade and still play whatever the latest game is no worries.[/quote:vzhkq8pk]
I guess I'm saying you didn't need to buy the extra GPU power ... yet.
[quote="SoldjahBoy":vzhkq8pk]So, when do you stop waiting? What you just stated happens all the time. If you thought like that, then you would never buy anything new...ever.[/quote:vzhkq8pk]
I generally skip every other generation of hardware and take a look at upcoming releases. DirectX 11 is coming and they're talking about 12 already.
The cycle doesn't end, and as far as gaming goes, I gave up on PC for the most part. Xbox 360 and PS3 will last 5-6 years and cost tons less. There's a few PC exclusives left, but not nearly enough to blow a huge sum on a PC.
[quote="SoldjahBoy":vzhkq8pk]I don't know what kind of laptop you have, but my MSI GX600 (512gb GeForce 8400M, core 2 centrino, 4gb ddr2 800, etc etc...) doesn't run Crysis at 30fps... at least, not on anything over Low settings. D:[/quote:vzhkq8pk]
Core2Duo @ 2.4ghz, 3 gigs of ram and an 8800M.
[quote="SoldjahBoy":vzhkq8pk]I just have one PC and one laptop :/[/quote:vzhkq8pk]
I'm down to just this laptop and nearly every gaming system on the market. I will never buy a desktop PC again. I used to do exactly what you did, and I guess I just don't care anymore.
