The next generation of gaming is coming soon (around holiday season). Is it better to wait until then to buy a desktop gaming PC? Will hardware around that time be a lot better and more capable of handling all the new technologies?

You should buy/build a system when you need it, you have the money for it, and all the parts you want are at a price you wish to pay.

Waiting is a fools game...there is ALWAYS something new on the horizon.

you can wait until thanksgiving specials wich are popular in the USA (if you live there). At this point a new generation of GPU should be available, maybe new cpus too.

They would be costly, but the current generation of GPUs / CPUs we have now should see price drops at that time.
