New gaming gear

I intend to buy/build myself some new gaming gear (your suggestions are welcome, of course), but I wonder if should wait juuuuuuuuuuuuuust a little longer - until Micro$oft officially Windows 9, for instance, and issues vouchers for a free upgrade to their "latest and greatest" (cough)...

Well, if you're talking about peripherals like mouse/keyboard, or hardware like a graphics card, then I don't see why you should wait for windows 9.

What kinda things are you considering?

Budget is 1800 Euro max. I was thinking Core i5 4690(K), 8/16 GB RAM, Samsung 840 EVO 500GB, ASUS Strix GTX970. All on some H97 (Z97) MB - ATX or mATX. In a Scout2 case.
Also looking at Corsair Hydro cooling. Maybe add some soundcard.

Cool, that's plenty for a nice rig.

Don't get that CPU though, it's from the old generation by Intel. Instead, get one from the latest line, like the i7-5820K, or wait for the new i5 models to be released. And make sure to get an X99 mobo if you get one of those i7's. X99 only takes DDR4 RAM too, afaik.
Also, I would recommend an Asus mobo. Have only heard good things about them. Getting mATX is also a good way to save some money.

As for RAM, I would recommend being aware of how much you currently use (seen in the task manager). Because if you've got 8GB and never get close to full usage, then stick to 8GB. 16GB is nice for having lots of stuff open at once though, if you're into that.

The SSD and GPU are great choices.
I don't know much about water cooling or cases though, but I know LinusTechTips has a lot of good videos on that, if you aren't sure about your choices.
As for sound cards, all I can say is this - I've never heard experts say anything good about them. Quite the contrary.
The onboard sound on a mid-high end Asus mobo would easily be good enough.

I guess the only thing that might be worth waiting for are 5th generation i5 CPUs and the mobos they would need. If you're into game recording though, you should get an i7.

Here's what I would build for 1800€

Case: Corsair Obsidian 750D
CPU: Intel i5-4690K
CPU Cooling: Corsair H100i
Mobo: Gigabyte Socket 1150 GA-Z97X-Gaming 5
RAM: 2x4gb Corsair Vegenace DDR3 1866Mhz
PSU: Corsair RM650
GPU: MSI GTX 980 4GB GAMING 4G
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 500gb
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1tb

This is what you'd get for ~1800€ in Estonia, I believe.
