If you have the patience to wait for the Haswell processors, then just wait for them, Maybe you get a 6 core processor (12 in total with hyperthreading) instead of the current i7 with only 4 processors (+ 4 more in hyperthreading). As we see the market today AMD is going for 8 core processors and I believe Intel will do something with that, maybe even we can get some 8 core processors with hyperthreading from Intel's Haswell technology.

We already know what Haswell will be. 4770K is 4 core with HT. So, 8 threads. That has been public knowledge for a while now. IB-E and IB-EP will have 6-8 cores just like SB-E and SB-EP. But they will not be out for a while yet. Both mainstream Haswell and big core Ivy are expected this summer.

You can always wait, and something better will come out. The decision as to when to jump on board is entirely yours.

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!
