Hello everyone, I'm upgrading my CPU and motherboard (and by extension, RAM, since it's DDR2), and I want some input on whether or not I should spend some cash and go with a Sandy Bridge (or Ivy Bridge?) system, or a Phenom II (or Bulldozer?) one. Obviously, the Phenom II system would work out cheaper, and I like cheaper! But I'm wondering if that by not opting for the latest-and-greatest Intel chip, would I be looking at an upgrade sooner rather than later, down the road? Any and all suggestions and/or input are welcomed; my location and current system specs are in my signature, so please keep those in mind when suggesting anything. I'd prefer buying locally, since most of the popular components are easily available via retail, but I wouldn't mind ordering online if the price is right (although with shipping rates the way they are, I can't imagine that happening anytime soon).
