Hey guys. I'm planning on building my first system for nearly 10 years. I've been saving for a while and have a budget of around £2000 ($3300) for everything (screen, peripherals, OS, etc). I'm planning on building a dual boot hackintosh/windows machine for graphic design work and gaming. I'd done a lot of research and put together a parts list I was happy with, when I found out that there is a boatload of new tech coming within the next few weeks/months such as GTX 8XX series, Haswell-E, DDR4, X99, etc.
Is it worth me paying out now for the newer tech? My thinking is that if I go with some decent DDR3 now with an X79 board, It'll cost me more to upgrade in the future because I'll have to buy a new mobo to upgrade to DDR4 anyway.
It's all so bloody confusing!
Thanks in advance.
