Im getting ready to purchase my upgrade components. Here is what I am getting:

Asus Sabertooth Z77 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Intel Core i7 3770k IB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
16GB Corsair Dominator 1866 Quad Channel Kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Asus Geforce GTX 680 DirectCU II Top http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Corsair H100 Liquid cooler that I already use on my Q9550

Will I potentially see any issues or bottlenecks with this setup? I already plan to add a second identical Video card once money permits. But I am dropping so much on this I wont have any left for a second card right off. I just figured if I was gonna do it I would do it big and do it right. lol

you're kidding, right? not even 680 SLI will bottleneck that.

Good. Then I don't have anything to worry about. :)  I was actually more concerned about bottlenecking the CPU but I assume thats a no issue as well.

You won't have to worry about bottlenecks for a loooooong time. That's one reason I decided to upgrade to a 3770k--that and the fact that my CPU was getting a little long in the tooth. Bottlenecks aren't even a possibility at this point, considering the fact that nothing can max--or even come close--PCI-e 3.0 bandwidth.
