Based on your advice, this is the change I will be making then,
1) Intel Core i7-3770K Quad-Core Processor 3.5 GHz 8 MB Cache LGA 1155 ( 4c/8t )
2) ASUS P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
3) EVGA GeForce GTX670 FTW 2048MB GDDR5 256bit, Dual Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, 4-Way SLI Ready
4) 4) Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz
I am choosing that MOBO because of the Thunderbolt since I do have a MAC for work and it will be good to have the similar technology. I like the WIFI too but not sure if that will be able to replace my wireless router.
So just using amazon for pricing this looks like $973. I am still open for more suggestions, speacially on the MOBO too. Thanks in advance.
