    If it were me I would wait for the lot then upgrade especially if it was all coming in the same week. Then again......that's me. :happy:

    I would also wait. You will more that likely have to do a clean install with all the new hardware so if you only want to do it once you should wait.........

    tried it once, did a repair and it fixed it - ran it for a few days, reinstalled cuz a clean install always runs best :)

    so it is possible to be done... but id wait all the same
