His build is better, why trade ther 680 for the 7950? imo, unless this guys isnt going for a gaming rig, which he is, then the 680 is much better.

You must not know about the differences of the 680 and 670. If the 680 is 5% faster than the 670, and the 7950 = 670, then this is a good build.

If he's gunning for a 680, give him a 7970 ghz. It overclocks like a beast and can beat a 680 any day

Definitely go with some of SHORYUKEN's suggestions instead of these.

Some explanations for his changes (should probably provide these for new builds, especially if its their first one, which this seems to be?):
The P8Z68 is an older board, and the only major distinguishing factor I saw was on-board bluetooth. Not really worth the step back and higher price. I have a P8Z77-V LK myself and haven't found its feature set lacking so far.

The Hyper 212 Evo is cheaper than the V8 and probably more than adequately fits your cooling needs (unless you plan on some high-end overclocking.)

At this point in time, Radeon cards are a much better deal price/performance wise than GeForce cards.
If the OP was really bent on the top tier, I'd personally recommend either a Gigabyte or ASUS 7970 though if they were originally going for a 680. (not GHz edition, since it's rather simple to overclock and get the same performance for less $). Otherwise a 7950 or 670 will suffice.
