Right on the money, only some small suggestions.

EVGA cards use a reference heatsink design, which is louder and doesnt cool as well as custom. a Gigabyte, ASUS, MSI or XFX card would be better. But I can see why you would stick with the EVGA given the free Borderlands.

Different SSD, the OCZ Vertex 4 is what I recommend. Its one of the fastest in the market, reliable and will only get faster as OCZ pump out updates for it.
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB. $115

Different HDD. You can get a 1TB Seagate Barracuda for $90, and it will perform better than that Hitachi drive.
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM. $90

Other than that, all is good.

Thanks for the quick reply, The reason I picked the EVGA FTW Edition is because it is factory overclocked and pretty much runs exactly like a 680 but is 100 dollars cheaper, and the borderlands code is for all Nvidia 600 Series cards right now ;)  . I can get the Corsair SSD for 80 dollars right now so that is a really good deal, and I already have the HDD so there is no point of getting a newer one. I probably should of explained my situation better but this comment should settle a few things out. :D

MSI, Gigabyte, and Asus usually have their cards with good coolers. You wouldnt need to pay extra for an OCed card. You can easily do it yourself, but if you dont want to mess around in the BIOS, MSI, Gigabyte and Asus also have most of their cards factory OCed.

Yes but if I overclocked it myself I would loose the warranty.
