I am wondering whether I should upgrade my computer, to something nice and fast because my computer is getting on a bit. Is this a good time to upgrade or should I wait a bit? I mean this in the sense of prices, are any of the newer bits likely to drop dramatically in price after something I don’t know about being released, and upgrades etc and new things coming out soon or not too far in the future. Also, is Vista any good yet? I heard it wasnt too great when it was released.
I am aiming to get a Direct X 10 graphics card (nVidia 8000 series maybe?), a reasonable processor (I am thinking AMD possibly) but I dont know whether to get dual or single core, because I hear they both have advantages and disadvantages. I would like at least a gig of RAM, possibly more.
Could anyone please give me some advice and opinions and if you wish to, post some examples of computers that I might buy. (Please use british buying sites in Â£ such as http://www.novatech.co.uk). My price range is around Â£1000-2000. I want to get a computer that can last me awhile, don’t want it going out of date too soon. Thanks a lot!
