I have an idea of what to start off with. But any advice to better improve the comp so I have less lag time and more rampage time would be sweet. The price is 1400$ and I haven't looked into anything crazy as far as mouse & key boards.

A few things i see.

1)RAM - For gaming you really shouldnt need more than 16GB of RAM. I would just get 1 kit for now and use what you save for a better GPU

2) GPU - \You might want to put some of the money you save buy getting only 1 kit of RAM to a gtx680 or a gtx580 (if you cant wait till the 680s come back in stock)

3) CPU - I see that you are looking at the i7-2600. If this is only for gaming then you really don't need the i7 as all you get is hyperthreading. Better to look at the i5-2500k. This will be cheaper and let you overclock for some substantial gains now or down the road.

4) Noctua NH-D14 - This is a bit overkill for a LGA 1155 Sandybridge CPU. A Hyper 212 EVO or Hyper 212+ is sufficient to overclock a i7-2600k to 4.5GHz or a i5-2500k higher than that. If you don't get the unlocked k-sries then you don't really need anything more than the stock heatsink.

5) PSU - This is one area that you should never skimp on. I don't think RAIDMAX is a quality PSU brand. I would look at a Corsair Brand PSU. You don't need 850w with this system, 650-700w will be plenty especially with only 1 GPU. If you plan on doing SLI down the road then get a 750w. Again Never skimp on your PSU. A bad PSU can lead to fried components.
