I have the money right now to buy this rig:

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 ATX AM3+
Memory: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB
Case Rosewill: CHALLENGER ATX Mid Tower
Power Supply: Corsair 600W ATX12V
All around 700$

Should i buy the parts right now, or are there going to be new cpu's/gpu's coming in the few month/months?

Good build, but I think you should at least look at the 8320

The only thing the 6300 has going for it is the promo deal going on currently, which is why it should still be considered. New cpu's won't be coming out for a while, but the 780 is coming out soon. This is going to be out of your price range though. Overall I think it's a good build though.

I don't think AMD has anything in the works for anytime soon release, looks like a good build to me. 6350 did just release but the deals on the 6300 are pretty awesome and I do love my 6300. But of course if you can squeeze the FX 8350 even better... 6350 a bit faster out of the box but 30w more juice means it will run warmer, I don't think other then clock speed there was much difference at all. So I guess 6300 is still a viable and easily overclocked CPU.. Go, Build, Game and be happy....
