Default New Rig

okay, so i am looking for a new build and i have no idea what i should do. Currently i am purchasing all of my parts one at a time and not all at once.

Currently my case is: - Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
my RAM is: - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
and power supply - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

What i need now is a Hard Drive, GPU, CPU and Motherboard.

I was thinking of getting Bulldozer since it's so cheap, and then getting a 7970 or 7950. But i don't know if i should blow off about 1200$ on them. It's a bit pricy. I can definitely afford it, its just the feeling of spending to much money that's bothering me >_>

Would going Intel be cheaper than bulldozer (8150 or 8120) and 990FXA mobos?

Could i just wait for AMD's new "pile driver" or Intels "ivy bridge"?

If there is any information on nVidia's 600 series GPU and their pricing, what is it?

Thanks alot guys.
