That happens for sure! But you end up finding another hobby after a while. For me I used to be big into shooting and competition in IDPA.....then I had my first kid come along and found out I needed to be home more so I started messing with computers......then my second one came along (because I was always home) and computers became to expensive.....then my third came along and now I'm praying for sweet death to take me.
On another note, this has thrown yet another wrench into my build plans. The 670 seems like the sweet spot, especially the prospects of a 4GB 670 for less than a 2GB 680... I have not even made up my mind between Ivy Bridge 3770K or SandyBridge-E!
I wonder if the 670 4GB models will have full coverage blocks, though? The lower TDP makes me think that it would be possible to run a good overclock on both the CPU and the GPU with a single radiator at the top of my Switch 810 (push/pull, of course)...
