Now the problem,i keep reading that i should wait until the new athlons arrive,ive waited long enough already,is it buy and be dammned or wait forever?????

If you feel youve waited long enough then thats your choice to act now,else youll be waiting forever.

You can get a Radeon 9800Pro for £156 now so I would suggest you go that route if you are into gaming.

Socket754 will become the budget board for future Athlons so you have a bit of leeway there to upgrade later.
