Single Status Update
Well, my desktop computer finally croaked on the 25th after about 8 years of use and periodic component upgrades. Looks like I'll have to save money up for parts to build something new.
In the meantime, I'll be using my laptop and Steam won't be on 24/7 since it's not needed on all the time during this period.

Speculation is Q1 2017 at this point, maybe Q4 2016 at the earliest.
I hope for an AMD come back but I don't think it's worth waiting to find out if a new system is needed.
I made the mistake of waiting on Bulldozer in 2011 when my PC was due for replacement, it failed to match existing hardware which resulted in my putting up with an inadequate system for an extra 4 or 5 months for no reason whatsoever.
