I would get a new pc now because it will take more than 8 months for steamroller release date

New radeon cards should launch around october ,as for the steamroller equivalent to the FX-8350, we aren't quite sure if/when it is out. My guess is that we will eventually see it some time in 2014 and it will be priced much higher than the FX-8350, near 4770k levels.

The 8350 is a beast of a cpu. I currently have the 8150 OCed to 4.5 ghz and it beats the i7 3820 in every category and test except for single threaded. I know you can get that cpu to 4.5 so considering it is about 15%-30% (depending on overclocking level) better than the 8150 for 200$ I think it would be worth it to just go for it now. Of cores unless you need or want the bleeding edge tech.

As for the GPU I do not know what exactly is going to be happening with those. If the release a gtx 780 equivalent for cheaper than wait otherwise don't. I know either way you would have to wait but my point is it all depends on what they release and how powerful it is.
