Mostly for gaming? I would drop the i7-3770k for an i5-3570k. You won't be see improvements in gaming with that proc vs the i5 that will justify a $100 increase. I think you can find a much cheaper Mobo as well. Then sink the savings from both of those into your GPU :D .

Unless your planning on doing something else besides gaming that would require the i7?

The motherboard is by far much more expensive than it needs to be. And unoriginal is right, drop the i7 and get an i5.

Cheaper power supply, not modular, but just as good in quality and sufficient wattage for a GTX 670 (or 2)

8GB of RAM is enough, trust me, I made that mistake.

Computer case, meh, cases are a very personal thing, its the centerpiece of your system, if you like the Corsair 600T, go for it.
