  1. Looking at examples like the The Enthusiast's PC build I was curious if when OCT comes around would there be a better option? I'm going to have some extra money just for a gaming desktop. I'm hoping for an Eyefinity setup that comes to $1500 not to include Mouse and KB. Everything else though, including OS.

    Any recommendations? Should I go AMD or Intel come Oct? Should prices be dropping soon with AMD hardware in the next month?

    AMD is supposed to be releasing their Bulldozer platform sometime in September. Wait and see how the CPU benchmarks read. After that post back here with your final budget and we will recommend a suitable build.
