I went for getting a new rig in september and will add another 590 and go watercool on them and get the next cpu after ivy bridge since ivy is only 35%-40% faster then i7 and the next gen will be 100% faster. Also keplar ( new nvidia gpu ) will be 40% faster then fermi ( 570 580 590 ) so i will get the next one after keplar wich promisses 16 times more performance.

Just my way of thinking. I can track down the info i am telling you about if you wish or you can google it yourself. so my vote would be get your rid now if you think like i do or wait more if you want.
After what you wrote, i am very confused now. Do you think it's worth waiting for like 2 months as you know i will be building this rig from scratch. When will the CPU/GPU hit the market? Approx. date? It would be really nice of you if you could point me towards the information regarding this. Once again, Thank you for being really helpful.

I think IB/SBE would be worth the wait, fairly confident Intel won't have the issues BD is having (but even those should be fixed soon (I hope)). If you gotta buy now I'd roll with this:

Mobo: EVGA Z68 FTW
CPU: Intel i7 2600K
GPU: MSI Lightning Xtreme Edition GeForce GTX 580
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 2133
PSU: Corsair AX850
Storage: Mushkin Chronos 60GB SSD and Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
Case: Raven if you want to spend a few more bucks, Phantom if you want to spend less. Both are great cases.
edit: Forgot cooler. I'd grab an all-in-one, like the Corsair H80, especially if you get a midtower like the Phantom. In a bigger case aircooled vs watercooled isn't as big a deal, but it looks cleaner imo. The price/performance is usually a little bit steeper, but not much.

I suggest the SSD, it's proably the most noticeable upgrade you can make to your rig, and I love mine. With your budget it's not a problem. I've been outta the game for a while though, so I'm not sure what the "best of the best" SSD is right now. I've also heard good stuff about the OCZ Agility 3, and I'm sure other OCNers can dump their opinions. My Mushkin's treated me very well, though, so I still support them.

Ivy bridge ? very soon. Next nvidia GPUs that are middle or high end ? next year second - third quarter meaning june/july/august the least. and you are welcome.

Like darthjoe said for a GPU DEFENETLY ! 580 lightning if you don't plan to watercool it but on motherboard i would go asus z68 maximus if you want to spend upward 300$ for a mobo. For style i would go with Corsair 600T or uhm Storm Sniper but that's me.

On occasion, I haunt the hardware section of the Adobe forum, and the sentiment there is to wait for Sandy Bridge-E or Ivy Bridge. The rationale being the 4 channel memory will give better ram access for memory intensive applications like Adobe and other rendering applications.

This is very true, also the processor architecture is getting revamped. It's not just the addition of quad channel memory, we're jumping from 1155 to 2011 pins here.

But if i waited, i would be spending more wouldn't i?

Yep. SB-E is more expensive. Just go for the Sandy Bridge now and enjoy it. I'm building an SB rig too after seeing the disappointment Bulldozer had to offer. No real point in waiting.
