You're over-investing in CPU and under-investing in GPU. A 3770k should meet his needs just fine. With the money you get from that downgrade, you can give him dual 7970 or dual 670, both of which absolutely annihilate a single 680. Also, definitely go for the 1600 RAM. You get next to nothing from faster RAM speeds on Intel CPUs.
Does he have a general budget?

If he prefers liquid cooling, I'd have to say the NZXT Kraken x60: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If he prefers air, the Noctua DH14: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For the PSU, I would go SeaSonic, but how large a supply would vary based on the other components. If he wants a lot of overclocking and a CrossFire/SLI of high-tier cards, a 850-1000w would probably be best. If he only wants a single card, I'd take that down to a 650w.

Edit: The 1 card = 650w rule does not factor for dual-GPU cards. For those, you're going to want a bit more power.

I would tend to favour the Samsung. The 840 Pro series is awesome.
