Default Advice wither to upgrade my gpu now, or wait next year.

Pc specs at the bottom.
I really want to upgrade my gpu to the Asus strix gtx 980 by the end of December. Would that be a great solution or should I wait out until the new intel cpus roll out in 2015 and do a whole new system build. Pc is mostly used for gaming at 1080p high or maxed out setting.

Thanks for your inputs.

Your 3570k is fine, but I would wait for GM210 before upgrading. Should roll out some time in the beginning of next year.
