Worth waiting on 12 series cpu, 690 mobo, and ddr 5 ram?

As title suggests im looking to full build first time, should I wait for all of this to come out? A lot of the builds with 30 series gpus and ryzen/intel cpus are very good at the moment. How long do you think it will take to see how stable and reliable all this new tech will be? That and windows 11 comes out in like 2 weeks right? I know the price for like the 690 mobo and 12th gen intel will be pricey as is all new stuff. Thoughts? I could probably afford a high end cpu btw.

Definitely worth it. It should be much better and probably also have a better upgrade path. You're probably going to be GPU bottlenecked, but once you upgrade your GPU later the CPU bottleneck will be smaller. Even if you decide to get 11th gen or 5000 series it will probably be a lot cheaper because of the new CPU's
