If build is for gaming/ general purpose, you don't need i7 (either of them), or 16GB of RAM. No geme benefits from them, and is unlikely to, in a timescale of, say, five years. i7 and a lot of RAM are useful for high-end photo/video editing, or 3D design, and not much else.
Either ASRock board is good in performance terms, the fatality probably gives better overclocking, certainly more specialised OC features. ASRock are fairly basic in quality terms. There are similarly capable offerings, from Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI, which are possibly a better mix of performance, features, quality, although not necessarily "cheaper"
GTX680 is a very powerful card, although the slightly less powerful GTX670 is better value. The alternatives are the two HD7970 versions, standard and GHz. As you say you can compare, on anandtech. Of course, the balance tends to vary, depending on which game. If looking at a broad range of games, on of the HD7970s may be better value, although if looking at a small number of games, you really have to look at individual performance, to judge.
If you are not intending TWO graphics cards, 600w is plenty, virtually whichever GPU you chose.
The CoolerMaster Hyper 212Evo is best value.
Would generally prefer Samsung 830, OCZ Vertex4, or Crucial M4, for SSD. The Vertex4 is possibly the best, but OCZ are having some corporate issues, at the moment, so Samsung may be safer option.
Decent quality mid tower case fine.

Nothing wrong with any of those choices. Fatality is very competant mobo. I wouldn't criticise the PERFORMANCE of GTX680, only that it's possibly not such good VALUE as the GTX670, but it is certainly slightly more powerful.
600w is fine, assuming you are having single GPU. You would need more if you wanted to add a 2nd GPU. The Corsair is fine.
The 212Evo has very good performance, best in it's class.
Crucial M4 is good SSD. The Samsung 830 has slightly better performance. No help if it's not available where you are, but find that surprising.
Caviar Green isn't very fast. As you have an SSD, you don't need super-fast HDD, but something like Caviar Blue, or Samsung Spinpoint worth considering.

The new 412 Slim looks quite good. Basically, as far as I can see, the same height as 212, so don't see any issues fitting it. Everything else certainly goes together fine.
