My budget is around $500 for the graphics card 1500 for the whole build more or less.

650D is not cool and 600T is much cooler looking hahaha (it's my opinion). For a $500 budget, you can either get 680, 670 or 7970. They perform pretty similarly and I recommend the 670 because it is the cheapest. But they are mostly out of stock now... Still NVidia has shortages, If you don't mind waiting for the 670 to be at stock go ahead and wait :) .

So I suppose:

2600K $320, P8P67 $180, Vengeance RAM $50, Seasonic X 650W $130 (actually, is it? not sure), 600T $170, Crucial M4 64GB $80, Samsung Spinpoint 1TB $110, ASUS DVD ROM $20, CM Hyper 212 EVO $35, GTX 670 $400

That would be around $1500

Yes 7970 is good to crossfire. Though you may experience bottleneck or PSU insufficiency.

Yeah as I told before, the 680 is faster but just maximum, 10% faster and $100 more. So it is not worth the increase. The 670 is way a better deal.
