You need to make your list available to the public so people can view it.

or gtx 680 if you can wait.both are very capable cards but 670 is a better bang for
buck as it is only 8-9% slower than 680 and costs 100 buck less.it's your choice.
total-$1798
note-
add the 200mm fan on top of the case for better ventilation.you may also add another fan on heatsink for push/pull config.this is fairly quiet fan-
