Default should i wait?

I'm building my first computer sometime and i was wondering if it would be much cheaper to wait 6 or so months before building. My comp is about $1000 and is for gaming. full specs on it in other post.

yea you should wait, if you are headed toward the amd way, then wait for the venice cores,or dual cores to come out.

if you are heading the intel way, get the 64bit.
