I want that DSLR soo much, but isnt it totally overkill for an amateur? Im not a beginner but an amateur.... Also, and i admit, a little bit gear freak

Ow yes, its 2 years old, and now with the D4S, is canon going to release a newer 1D camera soon?

I'm also an amateur, I bought the 1Dx a few months ago, couldn't be happier. I went from the 20D to a 5D MK1, then also got the 1Ds MKII plus a 1D MKIIn. I loved the feel, look and performance of both the 1D's but wanted something I could tether more easily. I looked at getting a 1Ds MKIII but the s/h prices were more than the deposit for the 1Dx which came with 0% finance. So I sold the 5D, 1Ds and 1D and got the 1Dx instead.

Do I really need a 1Dx? No, it's way more camera than I need, but I don't care. I'm happy and will definitely be keeping it for many years.
