My build as I have planned it so far:

CPU+GPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge+XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 $434.99
Motherboard ASRock P67 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel P67 $152.99
RAM/Memory recycled from old PC G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1333
Case+PSU NZXT Phantom ATX Full Tower Computer Case + NZXT HALE 90 HALE90-650-M 650W $229.98
Hard Drive SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB $59.99
CD/DVD Burner LG Black SuperMulti Drive $15.99
CPU Cooler Noctua NH-C14$89.99
Optional Fan 140mm NZXT FN-140RB 140mm Case Fan$8.99
Wireless Adapter TP-LINK PCI Express Wireless AdapterNow: $19.99
Total so far: ~$1027 After shipping, no taxes, before rebate

I have another set of RAM: OCZ gold 4gb(2x2) 1333mhz which I plan on giving to my friend along with this PC should I keep it or buy another and better set of ram later on?

The current CPU cooler I wish to purchase is currently out of stock should I:
A) Wait for the CPU cooler to get back in stock then purchase all the components at once.
B) Buy the current build, wait for the cooler to be in stock, build PC once received all parts.
C) Buy the current build, use stock cooling, install the cooler once it arrives
D) Purchase the cooler from elsewhere
E) Other(please specify)

EDIT:
my budget is $1100
I'm running on a 1600x900 Monitor
Will anything bottleneck?
I WILL be Overclocking the CPU but not so certain about the Video card.
Also I don't really like amazon as they: Charge tax, slow shipping, personally feel inferior compared to Newegg.
Also I will call Newegg tomorrow to see when they'll have it in stock. What should I do if say, It'll be in stock in 1-3 day from now? (refer to the choices)

Update: Newegg representative just told me there's no ETA on the cooler since it's a new item. She also said typically a item that's out of stock will be so for ~2 weeks. I think I'm just going to buy the other parts today.

No need for Noctua's anymore. Hyper 212+ will do just fine, even the Intel stock cooler with that board can get the 2500K to 4.6ghz. Get the Hyper 212+ for 27$ and free shipping + free fan.

As for main parts, I don't know if your overclocking (I think you are from what I see) you should get the 6870 Asus DirectCu, but since pricing is so close. You should get the 6950 1GB. Performance will be excellent at high resolution so yeah...

A) No
B) Don't even get the cooler
C) No
D) No
E) Above

Thank you for you comment but I very much want that CPU cooler and I'm feeling very OCD just by the though of not having it. Please excuse my immaturity.
Also my CPU cooler information are from here: http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm
And yes I'm overclocking, definitely the CPU but I don't think I'll OC' the GPU. On top of that, I'll only be running on a 1600x900 monitor.

If you need the cooler that bad, you can look and see if Tigerdirect or Amazon has it for the same price. If they have it at all.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking of doing and if the cooler goes back in stock on Newegg before it ships out on Amazon I'll just cancel it and order on Newegg =P

Well then, I guess that's really all there is too it as your build doesn't really have anything to change.
