A frame is built with a maximum fork length in mind. If you exceed this length, it will increase the leverage (force) it has on the frame and alter the geometry. I know cannondale has an explanation of this on their website, but your frame will probably have different specs. It is the overall length of the fork, from bottom of headset race to center of hub that is important, not the travel.
I would buy the fork at the same time you buy the frame.
