To wait or not to wait for Kaveri

Hello everyone. I'm currently on the process of building a new pc, and I have most of the components decided, but the processor, and obviously, the motherboard. As you all must know by now, AMD will be "soon" releasing their new processors and it is being said that the new technology that was built in them will make them something like 30% more powerful than current processors. It is confirmed that they will use an FM2+ socket, so that would mean buying a new motherboard, in case I chose to build the computer right now. So, my question is, do you think it is better to wait some 6 months at least for the new processors and motherboards, which will most probably be quite more expensive than the actual ones, or should I build the pc with an AM3+ or an LG1150 compatible mother and an FX8350 or an I54770k processor? Thanks in advance.

    What are you going to be doing with this machine? I've found in recent years that the processor has become less and less relevant. More RAM and solid state drives are the name of the game today.
