TOO MUCH POWER for a single GTX 680, let alone two. Get the PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK 750W for $100. Unless you plan to do intense video editing, get the i5-3570k. Use the $ saved and get a better monitor, such as a 120Hz monitor.

I know what you're saying but I will be overclocking 2x GTX 680s and 3770k also will be using my computer gaming/HD video editing so hyper threading will be used. BTW I am also planing to build it few months later so I might also use the upcoming card GTX685. What would you say my head is about to explode!

It still is overkill. Nothing you are doing is going to change the fact that 750W is plenty for 2 680s even after OCing both the GPU and CPU.
