People say 7970 ghz for a single 1920 x 1080/1200 monitor is an overkill. However, I really love 60 fps or at least 45+ stable fps at ultra setting (including AA). I'm not sure whether to get 2 7970 ghzs or 1.
I wanna know if there's anything that I'm missing, whether they are all compatible to one another, and better option at similar price range.

Addressing the more important point here that you havent raised. Do not get that PSU. I can't stress enough how much you want to get a PSU from a quality manufacturer such as Antec, Seasonic, PC P&C, XFX etc.
Also 1000w is overkill even for dual cards. 750 or an 850w will be sufficient
Wow, I didn't know about that...Will have to cancel/return some of the things I bought (Blame my itchy trigger finger).
So instead of i7, i5 3570k = $70 saved
No OC for now, no liquid cooler = $100 saved
Still no SSD for now (Feel like it's luxury's luxury...If this HDD is slower in loading than expected, then maybe <My laptop had a HHD-SSD-hybrid, and it loaded pretty fast) :I )
CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W Gold Certified = $20-30 more
Still not sure whether I should get one or two GPU. I just feel 40-50 fps attainable (even with with an overclock, not quite over 60 <I assume>) in games like Crysis 3 is a bit iffy after seeing my friend's 690 running all games buttery smooth over 60+ ghz in 120ghz 1200p monitor. (Yes, I was jealous )
Don't think of an SSD as a luxury. After you've got a respectable processor, 8GB memory, and a gaming-grade graphics card, an SSD will have a bigger impact on your perception of your computer's performance than any other possible upgrade.
It won't buy you faster framerates, but in pretty much every other metric, SSD is king. You'll start enjoying it from the moment you begin installing Windows, and you'll continue to enjoy it every time you open a program, copy a file, save a file, load a zone in a game, or move around a seamless open-world game. It makes a world of difference. After getting used to my SSD, I find that doing anything at all on an HDD system - even a decent one - is torture. It's like traveling back in time to 1995.
An SSD (at least 128GB) should be a standard part of any build over about $1000. At $1400 or so, go to a 256GB SSD.
