Since this is the first time you are building a computer I d have a couple of questions for you.
1. Why are you getting a $450 motherboard?
2. Why are you getting 32 gb of ram?

The i7-3770K is an ok purchase because it is a top quality cpu and the two GTX 670's are also a good choice.

Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
$179.99 and a $20 rebate makes the final price $159.99.

These are also top quality choices to go along wth what you are already choosing for parts.

2. Concerning the ram i happend to get a very good deal on it so it costed me like almost like taking 16gb.

I'm not saying that you have to make changes it's just that you may be wasting money with some of the things your buying because you will never make use of them.
The motherboard is a very nice top of the line quality motherboard and a lot of people would love to have one but you could get one for half as much and still be able to do the things you want to do.
The same goes for the ram , I know you said you got it really cheap and so you went ahead and got it , but you'll never use more than 8gb unless you have memory intensive programs like for video encodeing , video rendering , photo editing and 3D graphic modeling. For gaming you'll use 6 to 8 gb.
I guess it was just that I could see you spending a lot of money and not getting good value.

It will be enough because the cpu and video cards are new tecnology and are low power consumption as a result.
However there is no rule to say that you have to get this power supply or that power supply because that's what someone says is all you need. Your spending the money and you can buy whatever you want to. You can get this one if you want to.

It does say universal input 100v to 240v and if this is sold in Europe it will be the standard 220v or come with an adaptor.

After looking at the spec's a little more closely it does say up to 240v input so that maens it will work in Europe.
