Hi I'm still tweaking the parts until I'm literally paying for them, which should be mid to late summer.

This is the build I'm thinking:

Case- Cooler Master HAF 932
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo- Asus P8Z77-V Pro
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...

CPU- Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge

CPU Cooler- Noctua NH-D14
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU- 2 EVGA 660 Ti's SLI (or maybe a single 680, to SLI in the future)

RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Storage- Intel 520 240GB SSD (This build is STRICTLY for gaming, so I think I only need an SSD for the fast boot times. No music or any other apps)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical Drive- Asus 24x DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU- Corsair AX750 80+ Gold
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Monitor- Asus VH238H 23" 2ms 1080p LED
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I will probably be playing at 1920x1080, since that is the native for the monitor. Now, I know Kepler and Ivy Bridge have yet to be released, but I have heard pretty good things so far. I want to be able to play BF3 and Crysis at max, or at least high, settings smoothly. I want to keep the cost at around ~$1800-2000. Assuming the new products will be around the same price as their predecessors, the current cost of this setup would run me about $2000. Any and all advice on tweaks and replacements, especially to optimize performance, yet bring down the cost, will be greatly appreciated!

I would prefer newegg as a reference site.

I know I still have quite some time to make my decision, but I was just curious if this will be able to do what I want from my machine, or am I expecting too much? Thanks in advance!!

That's an interesting rumor? But if you search up the latest GDC, you will see that Epic confirmed that their Samaritan Demo for this year was rendered using a single 680 card. Also, some more pictures of the card itself, without the cover and fan, have been leaked.
