Nvidia Video Card Advice

First build, second question. I promise to come back and return the knowledge I'm getting.

I'm building a gaming/music production computer. I've nailed down a lot of the specifics about which parts I'd like, but I'm starting to question my choice in Video cards before I order it. I have no intention of overclocking right away, although I've acquired some parts that have the ability for the future. I've also settled on an IPS display after being blown away by the vibrancy, giving up the 120hz because I simply do not play many FPS. I'd prefer to have Skyrim look it's absolute best then to have a better KDR.

I have been seriously thinking about the GTX670 or possibly the 680. They come at a high cost, but they future proof me for quite some time and give a very high FPS. But, it honestly might be overkill for me. I have the budget, but why spend if you don't have to. I will be playing some of the newest games and I'd like to run them at max settings. Below is my rig, some parts acquired, some in a virtual shopping cart. What is your advice? Thanks for your help.

Get the 670 and in the future you can SLI another one, thats what I am doing. I recommend the Gigabyte or Asus models.
