Do I wait for an ac USB 3.0 router?

I want to make a major router upgrade and buy something cutting edge and future proof. I want a router for home networking (streaming movies) and to connect a USB HDD (I have a USB 3.0 HDD) to for sharing on the network. However I am really stuck with what to buy and whether to wait. So I have a few questions I would really appreciate some advice on:
1. I don't have any ac compatible hardware, but should I still go for ac, knowing I will have this router for several years, or get a good dual band non-ac router?
2. I would really like quick network access, therefore is it worth getting a router with a USB 3.0 connection (which I don't think any of the current ac routers have). I have read somewhere that the router CPU is always the bottleneck and even if you have 3.0, it will make little difference, can anyone advise (or do they know of a good router which is set up for fast HDD access)?
Thank you in advance for your help, it is greatly appreciated.
