This is where my vote goes. :) 
Wasn't sure if you needed an OS, but you can easily fit one in if you reduce the card to a 770. The 780 is only 15% better and you'll still be able to max out games.

I'd go for this. SSD's aren't important, they offer no real performance increase, just quicker loading times. You'll get the second best Nvidia graphics card. An 8 core CPU, most people say that they're overkill, however, games only utilize at the most 4 cores, but in the future, with next gen consoles having more cores, the games will adapt and use more, and this will be the same with PC games. You can easily overclock the COU to 5+ghz and the same with GPU and RAM.
