First of all, no way you can get to 5GHz stable, and 1.8V is pretty much instantaneous CPU smoke. 4.5GHz is a more reasonable target, and stay below about 1.3V.

Little point in closed loop cooling - either go for a real custom loop, or stick with a decent air cooler - they are cheaper and often perform the same or better.

DDR3-2133 is a waste of money. There's no advantage over DDR3-1600.

Caviar blacks are overpriced. Get a blue or barracuda. Also, 500GB? If he's rendering get at least a TB or two.

Unless you REALLY need CUDA, go for a 7970. Or two.

Get about 500W for a single GPU, or 750W if CF/SLI.
