I would wait a bit longer, you might not get a discount on the cpu, but you might get a discount on a mobo+cpu combo

If you're going to wait, wait for black friday or cyber Monday.

Ryzen!

I'd vote a Ryzen build and get the best GPU you have the money left over for. Ryzen 2 will be out in Feb also.

If you're dead set on intel then I'd advise waiting to see how the release of Ryzen 2 brings down prices of the intel chips, like the intel chips did with Ryzen.

It's a win-win really.
