Will my case be cool enough for my high end components?

Ok guys, here are the components for the rig I am about to build soon:

GPU:EVGA GTX 780 3GB Superclocked ACX
PROCESSOR:Intel Core i5-4670K S1150 3.4GHz Haswell 6MB
MOTHERBOARD: MSI Z87-GD65-GAMING S1150 Intel Z87 DDR3 ATX
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9 XMP
SSD: Samsung 256GB 840 Pro Series SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive
PSU: XFX 850W 80+ Bronze Certified Single Rail PSU
CASE: Zalman Z9-U3 Mid Tower Case
Monitor: 27" Asus PB278Q LED Monitor PLS 2560x1440

I will not be overclocking my i5 processor or the motherboard. The graphics card is superclocked and I believe the heatsink dumps some of the hot air back into the case (I'm sure I read that somewhere, lol). My question is...Will the Zalman case be sufficient in terms of case temperatures/cooling? It has 3x 120mm fans pre-fitted with space for 2x more if required.

Thanks guys. I find this forum really helpful. Keep up the good work :-)

just to note, if your not overclocking, why buy the k series CPU and a z series mobo? you only need that for overclocking.

Re-allocate that budget to a swet looking nzxt 410 phantom and a fan or two :p
