Get a 670, 680 is not worth the price difference. Also consider a 7970. Evo hyper 212 or the latest model CPU cooler. Keep asking and good luck

What resolution are you using? The best GPU will be largely dependent on that. The AMD 7900s only come into their own at 1440p+ resolutions. I also would not recommend an i7 for a gaming build. The CPU you picked has a small advantage over an i5 like the i5 3570k, and the premium you pay for it makes the little performance gain almost obsolete. Games can not yet use 4 extra hyper threads that it will give you.You also don't need 16gb of ram. It is a little overkill. 8gb should be best.

Thanks both. One last thing I forgot to tell u is that I am going to do video editing so that is why I got the i7.

Ok that might justify it.
