I think you should wait (for a few months?). End of this year X79 and the 3960X will be out, that will be top of the line. The 2600K + P67/Z68 is a mainstream platform and will continue to be so in the future. For gaming the 2600K is the best ATM mostly due to the fact that most games don't utilize more than 4 cores.

For GPUs, get 3GB GTX 580s if you want to be king of the hill (tri-SLI for great performance and quad-SLI for e-peen).

So if I were to wait and save for the SB-E, the rampage III wouldn't support it because
It's for older socket sets? The 1155 is better then the 1366, because it doesn't support the newer fast cpu's coming out in the future?

I think it's because the Asus maximus extreme is 1155 so its compatible with the 2500k/2600k. 1366 is the hexcore 1st gen i think.

Not sure what the 3960x is but the x79 is the LGA 2011 MB

Rampage III is the X58 1366 platform (almost end of life)
1155 socket is the new and current SB platform (P67, Z68 boards)
X79 is SB-E and uses a 2011 pin socket. (set to replace X58)

Upcoming IvyBridge (out next year sometime) set to replace SB but will use the same 1155 socket so buying SB 1155 (preferably a Z68 chipset) now is a wise choice, since you'll be future proof for a good while. SB-E is for those with a larger budget.

Core i7 3960X = 2nd gen Intel Core i7 6 core CPU (2nd gen 990X to be short).

X79 = Chipset for a motherboard (X58 for 1366 or chipset for 990X)
