I have been putting off upgrading my system for years now. I'm still running an O.C. i5-3570K.

I finally decided 2020 was the year. But this spring, parts were hard to come by. So here I am mid summer and parts are available and I have the money to upgrade. But now I hear rumblings of Ryzen 4000 around the corner.

Part of me says just buy it as Ryzen 3000 series has been discounted and is plenty fast. Part of me says I waited 7-8 years, what's 2-3 more months?

Probably looking at a 3700X and 1660 Super if I go now.

I suspect we'll continue to see disrupted supply chains for a while, so the whole "it'll be here _____" seems ambitious at best. And then just a drawn-out, out-of-stock, non-discounted wait for a really long time.

IOW, I don't think you're better off waiting. Normal year and some competition from Intel, maybe. But it seems both of those things are off the table at the moment.
