Selling my current rig to a friend at the end of October, so looking to buy parts for a new one before then. Since BD still isn't out yet, guess I'll be looking at an i5/i7 k system. Will be watching for good deals on SSD, graphics, etc. between now and then. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
