This is a good point if all you want to do with your PC is play SC in the PU. I kind of agree with you on this but mostly I do not agree. You can spend your lifetime waiting for the next great thing, price drops, etc... Instead of saying hey I will wait until such and such happens, why not build a PC that has a great motherboard, awesome processor, strong power supply, and a very decent graphics card. This is exactly what I decided to do and I'm enjoying the benefits of it. Could I have saved money if I waited? The answer is absolutely. I'm glad I didn't wait because I have been enjoying many games in the meantime. So why not get say a nice GTX 780 now and then we the major price drop happens later just add another in SLI? Why not get a great motherboard, i-7 4770-k, and 2 8Gb sticks of fast RAM? You can add 2 more sticks of RAM in it and be running 32 GB if ever the need should arise. You can add liquid cooling and overclock the processor later if you ever need to. All the while you're enjoying 1080p or higher graphics on the most demanding games and with all of the settings maxed out and extremely high frame rates. If you build your pc wisely it will be cost-effective to do it now and enjoy it now instead of waiting. Sure you can just get a mechanical HD now then buy that solid state later on when you have the extra cash. Just don't skip on the most important components like motherboard, processor, and power supply, or you will be wasting your money by having to replace them later. I highly recommend a Z87-deluxe motherboard or similiar, i7-4770k or i5 k version, and quality power supply to have great gaming now and future proof your quite some time to come.
