    When AMD came out with the BullDozer chip.... it did not live up to it's expectations. We do not know how AMD's Zen chip will be yet

    @Knives*: I would wait to see how the AMD Zen stacks up, and what problems, if any, arise. As a rule of thumb, I usually go with one back from the top of the line CPU / MoBo.

    I disagree completely.

    No AMD, go for Intel and nVidia. Unless you want to fall behind quickly.

    In 3 years time? Do not worry about it. Be real! And be well. 3 years is a very long time in technology

    I do the opposite. I make a PC with technology from a couple of years ago and put together what was a hot PC at that time for a really good price now. :biggrin:

    I assume you get new boxed and wrapped parts despite they are "old" right?

    Yes. I usually buy new parts, unless I am upgrading some old, used hardware.

    To say it more clearly. I don't ride the bleeding edge of technology. I get new hardware that is a couple years old, has the bugs worked out and is cheaper.

    My future plans for 2018 :

    I will buy "Sony NFC brain implants" and "Facebook Vidor Glasses" that include cheap "Dr. Dre Speakers" and I will never leave my virtual world again. Even this forum will be 4D.
