System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Overclocking, Surfing the web, Movies and Music.

Thanks for the quick and informative response Tron.
I decided will be changing to the GTX 670 2gb, PSU, MOBO, Case (love the minimalism of it :D ) , and keyboard to the ones you suggested. The cooler is a little out of my price range though. You really helped me. Thanks :) !
