The build looks good. I would not spend money on fans until after you get your case. If gaming is the primary focus you could actually drop the GPU to a 670 and upgrade your SSD to a 256GB model. 1866 RAM will not be of use and will actually be warranty-voiding, so you will need to drop that to 1600, and 8GB is plenty for most uses. I think I would also get a different power supply - try the Corsair TX750 or the Seasonic S12 II 620W.

You do not need 4GB ram on the 680 or even if you switch to the 670. By the time it is needed, you card will be on its knees.
