OK, I have finally put together what I want in my new system. Now my question is A) Does everything look compatible? AND B) Is it worth it to buy it all now or is there anything close to being released that might be a good reason to wait a bit?

Every thing looks good but that CM psu. Also if this is a gaming build, then you don't need 16GB of RAM, nor a 2600K.

This psu is manufactured by Enermax for LEPA and it's top of the line.

This one is manufactured by Seasonic for Corsair and it's another top of the line psu

CORSAIR Professional Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Power Supply

Also I would think about going with one strong card now, and adding another one later on down the road. Like a gtx 580.
