The computer market is like a bucket with a hole in it. Best not to fill the bucket until you're ready to drink from it.
so true, so true, i like that actually.
and i agree with you completely, if your looking for a computer that meets bare minimum to run the game, then wait. if your lookin for a powerhouse PC you can either build your own (i reccomend the new 64 bit AMD line, FX if you can afford it). or you can go for the prebuilt ones (which unless you know where to look, AMD based prebuilt is non-existant)
i plan on building my own computer if i can ever get a job for it. i estimate the cost at about $3,000-$3,500. I found a similar computer in one of the PC magazines i get, but, it was the same price, and didnt come with a flat screen monitor (my reccomendation as well).
Computers are tricky to buy, 9/10hs of the time by the time the computer has been shipped to you (if you order offline) there is a newer, faster, better computer released.
