Is now a good time to build?

So I was thinking of doing a new build pretty soon for around $800 or so. I am just wondering if there is anything big coming out in the next few months that I should wait to build for. I am not necessarily in a hurry, so I wouldn't mind waiting. I would be doing the build for gaming, music, movies, internet, multitasking, etc.. My resolution would be 1920x1080. So any new GPUs coming out soon or a new socket or anything major? Thanks :D

Yes there is actually. Sandy Bridge, Intels new processors will be out early next year and look to be very nice. These are on a new platform LGA1155.

Also the HD69XX cards will be out in a few weeks which are the replacements for the 58XX cards.

Waiting for the 69XX's is a must though waiting for SB will only majorly benefit you if you are doing CPU intensive tasks.

looks like your running an i7 already...
just wait.
nVidia GTX580 and go SSD..

oh it must say what my old setup was in my profile! I sold that i7 build a while ago. I have had a laptop for college for about a year now. thanks for the advice though guys!
