With the 990x Extreme I would even skip upgrading to Haswell which is coming out next year. I would probably wait until Broadwell is released (a minor upgrade version of Haswell), or possibly even SkyLake which so far there is no information about it other than it will be built using the 14nm die process. 2016 maybe?

If you love to be on the bleeding edge of performance all the time then go for the upgrade. Just release that being on the bleeding edge also bleeds your wallet.
