If you had the money right now and could build would you with the knowledge of upcoming releases?

I want my new build to last for another 5 years without mobo & cpu change, of course other items will change in that time. Maybe this will also help others trying to decide on new build timing.

This is a general veiw of my current build:

This is an HP computer that I have added parts to over the years it is 5 years old now.

Athlon 64 X2 3800
2gb DDR
250GB HDD
8800 GT GPU

This is a general view of what I would build:

i7 930
Asus P6X58D Pre
6gb DDR 3 Corsair
1 TB Samsung F3
80 GB Intel SSD
GPU undecided
etc....

I would wait for Bulldozer, but now isn't a bad time to build one I guess.
Though I would get a 920 vs a 930. One does not overclock better than the other one.
