Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68

2x GeForce GTX 670

Kingston HyperX 8GB RAM

SeaSonic X Series 650W GOLD Certified

Seagate 2TB Internal Hard Drive

120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive

ASUS 24" 2ms HDMI LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor

My concerns are bottle-necking, psu not enough, overlooking components...

2 GTX 670's maximum power would be 340W, and add maybe another 150W for the rest of the computer. You have a great power supply there, the only thing I could think of is possibly the GPU being bottle-necked by pcie 2.0 only running at x8. I'm no expert on that, but it might be worth researching.
