Below is the build I am going to initially build when I get my money in a couple monthes. I am a hardcore gamer, but I also intend to get into some really heavy 3D modeling/animation/rendering. I intend to do this professionally, so I will need a monstrous machine. The 6 powerful cores of the I7-6850K is just at the price point I want to spend for a powerful CPU, not to mention the nifty features X99 comes with.
I feel like I will greatly benefit from the 8 cores and 16 threads Ryzen will come out with, and I do fully intend to overclock.
This is the build, but later, it'll progress to this. The AM4 board I will go with will be whatever 200-250$ board MSI comes out with as MSI is my preferred motherboard manufacturer.
Again, I think the main verdict will be to go for Ryzen, but I want everyone's thoughts.
