I am choosing a CPU for my new build but should I wait for Broadwell or just go with the haswell CPU??

Btw, will the MSI Z97 GAMING 5 be broadwell ready??

Yes, that board will be compatible with Broadwell. We don't have benchmarks of the 5770K yet, so I don't have an idea, but I think that if you can wait you should.

Yeah, I will wait because I won't get all the parts before early 2015 anyways... Thanks :D

Alright, if you wait, make sure to get the Z97 DDR4 boards that will come, DDR4 is much better :)

DDR4 is nothing special.

Finally, as far as DDR4 is concerned, the chips will top out DDR4-2133 and will only officially support DDR3-1600. If that’s true, it implies Intel is fudging configurations a bit to compensate for DDR4-2133′s higher latency — at the same clock speed, DDR3 is faster than DDR4 thanks to its intrinsically lower latency. DDR4 won’t pull ahead from DDR3 until it hits at least DDR4-2700 and I wouldn’t expect to see significant improvement until DDR4-3200.
AVX3 should provide significant acceleration — AVX2 gave Intel chips a hefty kick over standard AVX — but its aimed at the same HPC markets where Xeon Phi has done well. The impact on consumer software may be minimal, at least in the near term.
