I put together an i7-2600K with 16gb ram last year, so my computer is fine. I wouldn't shoot at the full resolution all the time anyway, rather I would use the medium size ~20megapixel setting most of the time, except for formals.
Not switching would be more expensive than switching: Canon 1Dx = $6800 each. If I were to sell my cameras I would have to spend another $10k just to have two bodies. Basically, that means selling off ALL of my other equipment...so I would have no lenses and 2 bodies.
1D3 = useless to me. I shoot full frame for weddings, I don't really like the look of anything else after using crop cameras exclusively for the first 3-4 years of my photography experience. Also, 10 megapixels isn't enough for me to consider as anything but a backup camera, AND I don't need anything near 10fps for anything I do. 1D3, 1DIV, 1Dx all have features I don't need and they are much bigger bodies. I only need 4-5fps and full frame, with 12.8 megapixels being my current minimum comfortable level and highly preferring 16-20mp. And, the camera has to do ISO3200 very cleanly if need be.
Canon doesn't offer any camera that fits all of my needs except for the extremely expensive 1Dx.
