So im gonna start ordering the parts for my gaming pc but every review for the evga gtx 680 has been done with multiple moniters or at 4k resolution. My noob question is, will this graphics card work for my humble single 1080p moniter setup?

GTX 680 will work for your setup and give very awesome performance.

But I would suggest you to get a Radeon 7970.

Sumukjh_Bhagat why would you suggest a Radeon 7970? so far Ive only looked at one comparison of the two. I read about the gtx680 crashing a lot so i looked at that, then i read the verge's comparison, im still on the fence about either

Whats the rest of the system and is Crossfire/SLI a concern?

A 550W PSU should be fine for an overclocked system with either a single 680 or 7970. Though many people get 650W for the added headroom and generally higher quality units found at this wattage.
If dual Crossfire/SLI is a concern, then get a 750W unit.
Brands to buy from. Seasonic, Corsair, XFX.

You should at-least get a Corsair 650w PSU.

Pretty easy for all non-GHz 7970's to reach 1GHz...
If were talking overclocking that's a different story of course the 7970 will OC better ;)  Assuming they will overclock if not their better off getting the highest factory oc card they can afford.

It can be done via CCC with no third party software needed. Although I like modifying the fan curve...
