Default AMD new Proc

Hey I was looking into a new build, but I while looking at the procs, I saw AMD getting ready to release the AMD Bulldozer. Has anyone heard about this and how it would compare to the I5 or I7 2500k/2600k? Build would be used for gaming and heavy video editing. Thanks for the help in advance.

If you want to start to building now grab an i7 2600k. If you want to wait, theres no telling how long you'll be waiting.

Like Paton said, the Bulldozer release date has been moving around quite a bit. Last I bothered to check it was coming out late June of 2011, obviously that didn't happen. Also, Intel's Ivy Bridge is supposed to be coming early next year, but again thats just speculation.
Your best bet is to build a machine that can handle the new processors, and decide if you want one when/if they actually come out.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
