Only in Fallout.. :)  Serious answer: No you won't have any bottlenecks. If you're using this strictly for gaming, then you might be able to save money with some changes.

Are you just using this system for gaming only? Or did you choose your components for rendering or editing video or something that need that much horsepower?

Well in that case you can go for it. I'm pretty sure a single graphics card can handle Skyrim unless you really want to go with 2. If you go with just one, you can upgrade it to a GTX 660 Ti. Have you thought about adding an SSD?

Edit

Keep i7
16gb Ram.
Drop a GTX 660, only need one for your needs. Or GTX 670.
650 watt PSU instead.

Fit in an SSD for a boot drive 128gb. Samsung 840, Vertex 4, Crucial m4

one screen in 1080p will always be for a game, and the other one will be for movies during game or videos on youtube while talking to friends

A single 660 can display output up to 4 screens. 3 in SLI and 1 for browsing/movies etc. Everything you need to do it can do with just 1.

Yes, one. if you were going to spend money on 2 660s you'd be way better off with a 7970 instead

And that leaves some cash for that SSD, with the amount you are spending on the system the extra cash from the other GPU you don't really need would be the best spend towards that SSD.

And I think 32GB of memory is pretty overkill, 16gb should be more than enough I'm sure,

Dare I say 8GB may even be enough?

I have a GTX 670(ASUS TOP above 680 performance) and a GTX 660. Big difference? not from my personal experience on 1080p monitors.
