I think this would be a better choice as I hate the monster 3-slot card design of the higher end Asus models.

Maybe go with a build like this:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - $59.99
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 - $89.99 ($20.00 MIR)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H - $119.99
CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - $249.99
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - $33.99
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw 1600MHz 1.5V - $46.99
SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - $127.99
HD: 2TB Seagate Barracuda Green - $119.99
Optical: Lite On DVD Burner - $17.99
Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 670 - $399.99
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99

Total: $1,228.99

The PSU will give you a bit more breathing room and then you also have more to add a nice monitor, keyboard and mouse. I usually don't include those things on builds as they're almost entirely personal preference.
