Hi there!

So i am building a system that has totaled up to $2100 and i am wondering if this graphics card is worth buying for such an expensive system, i can't really afford to spend more, but i can cut down items to save money, EG: lowering amount of memory would save $20.

The card i am thinking of buying: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 Overclocked 2GB

And my build: ASUS VE248H 24in Widescreen LED Monitor $195.00
CoolerMaster CM 690 II Advanced with Window USB3.0 $119.00
Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVDRW Drive OEM $19.00
G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-1600C9D-16GXM 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 $95.00
Intel Core i7 3770K $335.00
Corsair Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler $145.00
ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Motherboard $169.00
Corsair TX-750 V2 Power Supply $141.00
SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive 120GB $99.00
Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001 $100.00
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 Overclocked 2GB
Should i also think about getting a 850 PSU to future proof a little bit for future upgrades, and a final check to make sure everything will work together!

Thankyou kindly for help.

If you are just gaming, the i7 is going to have no benefits over the i5. Go for the 3570K instead. And if you are going for a motherboard at that price, go for a P8Z77 from ASUS.

Also, 16GB is unnecessary for gaming as well.

GPU is fine, but I would still recommend the 3570K.
