Do you know the difference in performance compared between GTX 670s and GTX 680s? In most games with both cards at max stable overclocks 670s can come within 2-10FPS of the 680 yet are $100-$150 cheaper. If that 2-10FPS makes a different to you, which can't be noticed in any game performance only benchmarks, then hey go for it. Also no gaming PC will utilize 8GB of RAM let alone 16GB of RAM. You could used the saved money on dropping to a GTX 670 and 8GB of RAM to upgrade to a more durable motherboard, something like a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H
If you want to leave room open for further upgrades such as SLI I suggest staying with 750W.

Hey thank you for the suggestions so I going to switch the gtx 680 to a 670 and go down to 8 gigs and get the gigabyte motherboard. Would a 600 watt powersupply be sufficient in this build then?
