*I apologize if this is the wrong forum*
My current system:
AMD Athlon 6400+ X2 3.2GHz
512MB 4870 (underclocked as far as possible)
2GB DDR2 800MHz
Should I upgrade now or wait for Intel's new 2011 socket? My budget is around $1500 maximum and I definitely don't want to buy tech that is about to be shelved in 3 months time.
If I were to upgrade I've theorized the following system; please let me know of things that could be changed for the better.

Also, should I bother upgrading my monitor? It's kind of boring now and with this new hardware I'd like some more screen real estate. Would this be adequate for my new system?

Also, I plan on using my computer primarily to play games such as Starcraft II, CS:GO (when released), Deus Ex, Crysis 1&2 as well as any other future game release that suits my fancy (maybe even the new Modern Warfare
