overkill on the psu, but you might be SLI'ing in future
as for the 1tb drive try to get wb black edition because they are slightly faster. green and blue versions use less voltage

Yes exactly right with the PSU, I plan to get another GTX680 when their prices drop.
Tbh I'm not really fussed about the speed of HDD, its still 7200rpm so I'm happy.

Thanks for your input.

Still no to the 680. Even if their prices drop, you will always consider the newer cards, trust me.

The 680 is way overpriced. You can get the 670 and only lose 10% of performance.

Better get the Seasonic S12II series for silence, or the TX series from Corsair. Although the GS isnt bad, I still prefer the two I just mentioned if you were going non-modular.

No no no no no SSD. Crap and unreliable. Get the Vertex 4/Crucial M4/Samsung 830.

$1500 AUD
Australia
I require everything I have listed
I plan to overclock the 3570K
Will do SLI but I don't want ATI's or GTX660ti's (rather just wait and SLI GTX680's)

You ARE WASTING money on the 680. Read carefully what Nw333 said. I would recommend the 7970 GHz Edition, but since you don't seem to like AMD*, then get a 670 and SLI it in the future.

GTX680 is only $90 more, I am not too fussed about it.

Cheers, I will get Samsung 830 128GB SSD.

My local store doesn't stock Seasonic.

Thanks for your input, appreciate it.

It's my first build, but wouldn't 2x GTX680's be better in the long run? I mean yea I might spend 100-150$ more but that's not too much to worry about.
