So I've already ordered the following:

GPU: 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ w/Backplate 4GB
Case: COOLER MASTER CM Storm Series Trooper
RAM: 2x CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)
MoBo: ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE LGA 1155


Buying the CPU on friday which is the i7-3770k

Also I'm fairly certain I have decided on SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB - For my SSD

and I think I have the slave drive picked out for my music/pics and vids

So mainly I'm stressing over the PSU and Cooler(CPU) for my system..

For PSU's I'm looking at the following..

and

Ok, i5 3570k is the best for gaming, same as i7 3770k (when gaming) and it's 100$ less, hope the memory you chose was low profile, that motherboard is 250$ which is way too much. That Samsung SSD is good, not sure about power supply. Go with air cooling. How many monitors will you be gaming with?

3 monitors, I'm getting the i7 3770k for only 229 so yeah.. gonna go with the i7 since its not only for gaming but for vid editing and photoshopping etc

Edit: But honestly do appreciate you looking out for cost savings :)

Okay, nice deal on the i7. Only thing I'm not sure about is that expensive motherboard, it's way too expensive.
