It doesn't include os price in the list, but i'm sure it's not more than ~100$ in there too, all parts are from Australia.
For gaming you don't need the i7, the i5 will give the same performance, only in editing or demanding applications outside gaming, the i7 HT is useful.
This psu allows for even a crossfire setup of two 7970.

it will work nicely together but id get a hyper212evo instead and save some money and use that to get a seasonic or other name brand power supply like corsair.But if your gaming you will do much better with a 3570k.It will take no performance away in games and will be much cheaper and the 212evo gives you some room to atleast 4ghz on a bad chip.Also if you ever plan to hardcore video edit than know that windows 7 home premium has a cap of 16gb ram.
