I am building a computer.

Is it worth buying a 8350 cpu or i5 3570K or the i7 3770K with Haswell coming out soon and the 1155 boards are end of life?

Wait for Haswell. It's a new socket, so you will have the Future Proof for 2 or more years. No point in buy a socket in his last 2 or 3 months. But if you go For amd, You have a future prood socket, the AM3+.

Like Chibinho said, new socket coming with Haswell.

If you don't need a new one now I'd wait and see how Haswell performance turns out. It is supposed to release
in less than 3 months. I'm guessing it'll be on the market late June. I'd wait and see.
