What kinda things are you considering?
Only the box itself (might be a laptop, though). No screen, mouse, keyboard or CD/DVD/Blu-Ray.
So we're talking MB, CPU, memory, GPU, Audio, cooling, OS and case.
It's already settled to go for an SSD (half a T or more) for storage - just to start off with.
In that case, don't wait for Windows 9. The only thing worth waiting for would be new hardware line ups, but since a new cycle has just started (new Intel processors and mobos to match, Nvidia GPUs, DDR4 RAM) there's no better time to buy hardware. There's nothing to wait for at the moment.
I wouldn't recommend more than half a TB for an SSD though, unless money isn't a concern.
I've got a 120GB SSD, which is on the small side, but it's enough for W7 and 2 large games + room for recordings.
With a 240GB SSD, I would have room for W7 and 8 large games (20GB each), which is more than enough for me. I keep my least played games on a regular HDD.
Half a TB would mean I could have practically everything that would benefit from being on an SSD there. Going beyond that size would just be a very expensive way to have excessive space for things that wouldn't need to be on an SSD.
