I would cut down to 8gb RAM thats more then enough really lol

I might cut down to 8GB Ram, Though the rig will be holding, Skyrim plus Mods, BF3, CoD:MW3, Photo Editing software is a maybe, along with some other software that may take up some memory. Gaming is my primary goal, running academic software is secondary, I'm a Science major so I might have to install some software for my classes, figured extra memory might help.

question: why choose the Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge over the i5-2500k? I am building my new rig really soon and had chosen the 2500k but didnt see the 3570 only 20 dollars more.. is it worth it?

Correct me if I'm wrong but the "K" next to the number stands for OC'ing right? if so, I don't plan to OC sense I don't know how, and if I plan to add a second Graphic card I don't believe I'll need to OC. :)

I'm making a change to my build.

Gaming, Mostly to run: BF3,MW3,Medal of Honor:war fighter( once it's out).

ASUS VH236H 23 Widescreen LCD Monitor Black x3
http://us.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=38845&promoid...

I want to run all 3 at once, so my question is. Will my GPU support 3 monitors? Will I need a larger PSU?

If yes to either please throw a few recommendations, If I need a different GPU I'd like to keep it at/under $399.

These are my current GPU & PSU

GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814125423

Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W ATX12V
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817371051

Also, again I do plan to add a second GPU some time in the Spring of next year.

Will 3 monitors cause my GPU to heat up alot more than 1?

Full system is at the top.

Thanks in advance

Yes, NVIDIA now supports 3 monitors.

No, monitors do not use that much power. You will be fine.
