    dunno. i heard on TV that moores law is running is stopping because there's no possible way to make CPUs much more complex. apparently they're looking into some biological thing thing so a transistor can do 0, 1 and 2. and multiple CPU being standard fair.

    may be the flu talking though

    Well i was thinking about buying a new computer and am deciding on whether i should by it now or if i should wait till 2nd half of next year when vista launches just in case theres a new generation which is better suited for Vista. Because if i did id be kicking myself for a while. What do you guys think? Also what about x86(i have no clue the significance of this)?

    Vista is slated for August 2006. Expect it to be late, of course.

    Any reasonably specced a64 system should run Vista just fine.

    Trying to configure a build today to fit an OS that MS won't release for nearly a year is impossible.
    Besides, it's still questionable whether Vista will be worth upgrading to till it hits the streets anyway.

    More importantly... Why are you asking? Is your current PC not working right?

    If it's still ok then it's better to wait.

    No doubt Intel will come out with the P5 when they've managed to get the P4 working properly without overheating.

    On the other hand, if they run true to form maybe not.

    Right now i run a really old computer that i had since 99 it still runs ok i cant play a lot of new games or i cant run apps and stuff is real slow. I want to buy another computer that will atleast last 4-5 years without outdating and im trying to figure out when its best to buy it.

    Anyway if your curious my specs are pentium 3 450mhz with 300 and something ram with a 120gig hardrive(the only thing i upgraded).

    So right now i get tempted by all these new games i cant play and all the other advanced stuff i cant do.anyways this is why
