That's a long ways away, some planning now would be good but by Black Friday, not saying AMD will be super good, but AMD is releasing Piledriver which is supposed to be the next step passed Bulldozer, hopefully that gives Intel compitition. Intel is also releasing Ivy Bridge, so those are two things coming out in your timeline of buying. With that said, if you're not purchasing now, wait till then to decide what to get.

Some pretty quick suggestions, easily I'd go for a 750w to leave room for SLI.

As for other stuff, waiting is probably your best bet to decide.
