Well what current hardware do you have to hold you over? If it's anything semi modern, like a Phenom II or Core 2 something, then just wait it out until Bulldozer. If it's something really slow, I would just jump ship and buy a 2600k.
I really like AMD's bang-for-buck blah blah blah. But the wait is really gettin to me. I sold my Phenom setup about 2 months ago and I need somethin to play with bad. I been shoppin parts like crazy and my wife is nearly bonkers with my endless techno-babble, so, yea... OMFGBBQ, AMD GET ON IT!!!
