    Question Worth waiting till after Christmas?

    Just managed to sell my current computer. Is it worth waiting till after Christmas to build a new computer? Will there be better deals than is currently on stuff or should I just go ahead and buy it all now?

    Or buy all except the graphics card, look for xmass deals.

    The reason the leave off the gpu is that the new 7xxx series is coming out between the 10-13th Jan, well the 7950 and 7970 should be, the 7850 & 7870 will be later.

    If it was me I would probably do as Pob255 suggests, with new gfx cards on the horizon I would wait.

    I suggest waiting. Retailers usually do not full their warehouse in xmas and many new and cool stuff will be added after new year for the business in next year.

    It's 20 (unless they have changed it), but they do have to be constructive posts, no spam.
