Here is a combo that will save you a little on that mobo and cpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
You could go with this case antec one http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006TVQU6C/?tag=pcpapi-20
Also you will need a different psu than the one in the build above. That one is no good only 1 pci-e, low efficiency and its only 450w. Get this psu antec 520w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This is the psu I would get its a little more but worth it pc power & cooling silencer mk iii 500w http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=65318&vpn=PPCMK3S500&m...

Switching the PSU as you guys said, also the 2nd case will take up less space so I like that aswell.. Came here hoping to just barely get a i5-2500k and 670 leaving with a i5-3750k 670 and better MOBO then I thought, Thanks so much!

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:


GeForce GTX 670 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500~550 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 670 2x SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 700 Watt power supply unit as minimum.
GeForce GTX 670 3x SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 850 Watt power supply unit as minimum.
Remember, if you are going to overclock the GPUs or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. nVidia itself recommend 500W for a single 670.Since your going to overclock CPU + GPU Add OC to that.
http://www.nvidia.in/object/geforce-gtx-670-in.html#pdp...
I would recommend Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-550 550W Continuous @ 50°C, 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active - PFC Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Superflower made - 80Plus GOLD - Excellent quality - This is simply top of the line at a modest price . $75 and 5 yr warranty

I'd like to point out that I'm actually female. :p 

If you're willing to spend that much on casing, get the Rosewill Challenger-U3.

Haha sorry about that, and the case is $20 off on newegg with blue Leds and 3 fans. Perfect! Thanks

Make sure to get the U3 version. The previous one only has USB 2.0
