Should I Hold Out for a Processor?

I know with the big focus on bitcoin mining lately, that there are a lot of things that are making the cost of processors that much more than they would have been otherwise. Do you think that the prices of processors are ever going to go down? Or should I just bite the bullet and get a processor now for my next build? I want to see what you all think about this situation - thanks!

I am assuming you are doing GPU mining ,correct ??
If this is the case your answer depends several factors
1) Will bitcoin be the only CC (cryptoscurrency) you will be mining ?
2) Will you be able to make a return on your investment after electricity, mining rig, and CC to $ exchange costs
3) How long are you willing to wait for your Return on Investment for the above ?
4) what is your budget ?? ( you could mine on just one GPU if you have one )

Considering how volatile the market is , and ASIC mining development is outpacing GPU development currently, I personally would hold off or buy an ASIC mining rig that would have a higher hash rate, IMHO :)
