Looks good to me, but I'm personally not a fan of the DF-85, this would be a better suggestion: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Or if you want a full tower: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I also didn't see a motherboard listed - what do you plan to use there?

So if you guys were to give me an opinion, what would be the best graphics card?
The GTX 670 FTW or the GTX 680? I might overclock the graphics card if I want to though.

The GTX 680 is a better card. The GTX 670 FTW was just an option in case money was an issue/put the money somewhere else or you had no plans on overclocking.

They're actually almost the same card in terms of price, performance, and power consumption. The GTX 680 will only give you maybe 5 - 10FPS more - not a significant improvement but good enough.
