That's using just as much money doing THAT as it is waiting for Intel and upgrading all at once.
Just suggesting to maybe get a AM3+ compatible board (mine will support AM3+), some DDR3, keep your current CPU, when ever Bulldozer comes out, just upgrade the CPU.

You will save lots of $ and you will end up with a pretty fast system.

OR

go with Intel now and don't wait but pay lots of $$$
