So, after going through a few posts, I really started looking at my "now aging" Sandy Bridge 2500k and thought about when I should update it. With things like DDR-4, Broadwell-K, etc coming down the pipeline, I was wondering what everyone's next "need to have it-before you upgrade" part was.
Personally, I'd like to hold out until Skylake comes out before swapping out the old Sandy, but I'm sure that will mean switching out to a new mobo/chipset as well.
Then I've got my 7950. It's a great card, probably the best I've ever had, but I'm wondering when and with what I'll switch it out. Seeing as how Nvidia has its 8xx series nearing release, and I'm sure we'll hear about something from AMD later this year (after this mostly rebrands), I'm curious to see how much longer my 7950 will last at the level I like to play at (maxed everything at a decent clip at 1080p min). Even though I know that going from PCI-E 2.0-3.0 and eventually to 4.0 will take awhile to really be taken advantage of, 4.0 looks awfully tempting.
I really can't wait until all these next gen parts start rolling out as by then, I know my computer is going to be chugging along like the little mid-atx box that could. (I think I can, I think I can...)
What are you all waiting for, or looking forward to?
