I priced a computer not too long ago that would have run me 20 grand

But multi-core is the way to go, I just can't justify upgrading my PC right now, which is only about 3 years old and still runs/performs great since I speced it to the max when I bought it. They should offer upgrade plans on computers like they do on cell phones!

And does anyone else hate the fact that Intel switched their Pentium line-up to this new Core 2, ViiV, etc. bullshit? Why couldn't they just have the Pentium 5 multi-core? Would have made is so much less confusing (as if it wasn't already since the clock speeds went down instead of up due to improved efficiency)..
