Although it is a good thing to stimulate the economy by getting a new Desktop computer, you also could download and install the latest OpenBSD current snapshot.

OBSD 5.2 has been released the first of November, but actually is from end of July, beginning of August:

As you can see the OBSD developers have been working on new features and better hardware support for 4 1/2 months, since 5.2 has been cut. So it is quite possible that your system is better supported in this snapshot than 5.2
