But yea, I'm a nVidia fanboi too and with the projected release of their new card being bumped to February I might just wait for that. I also read in another thread here that intel is supposed to launch a new processor soon... Looks like waiting a month or so might be the best idea right now.
Dunno if I'd wait for that, because then you'll also want to wait for the price shock to go down.
Look at the 3930K, it's not even all that incredible and the proc plus mobo will set you back quite a bit. I expect the same once the new die comes along. If you're building a gaming rig, there's really no better option (on the Intel side) than the 2500K, if budget is a concern.
