Use the website here (http://pcpartpicker.com/) and select Get Started. Once you have selected all of your components, use the BBCode Markup button in the top right. Copy and paste the list in your post, here at Tom's. This makes it much easier for use to view.

If this rig will primarily be used for gaming, you can save a lot of cash. Your suggested build is quite the bit overkill.

Overclocking and future SLI:

The i7 is useless for gaming because games do not utilize hyperthreading. Not sure if you intend to overclock but I included the option. Same with future SLI. If you are not going to be doing either of those things, you can save more cash. 1000W is way overkill for PSU. 750W is fine even for SLI. You can also save on the Blu-Ray player unless you are really serious about playing Blu-Ray discs on the rig. The 680 is way overpriced as the 670 has just a slightly lower performance value. 16GB RAM is overkill for gaming as well.

Not overclocking or SLI (with personal preferences):

Are the parts compatible together is what I asked. The reason I am getting an i7 and 16GB of ram is because I edit.

Sure. It will work. Is it overkill, even for editing? Yes. Would you like some suggestions on bringing the cost down?
