"Intel Core i7-3820 (3.6GHz, 10M Cache, 8x Cores) CPU " Ehm ehm..... 4 Cores, 8 Threads Pls.


Firstly:
Are you sure the Parts are compatible with Win8?? Check each one out from it's compatibility list.

Secondly:
Why go for Win8? When your main intention it to Game? Do the games you play run on Win8? You need to check that out too.

Thirdly:
I'd go for a better sound card with that rig, than the onboard chip.

I would personnaly pick 2 680 with 4gb each not 2gb per gpu like the 690 (more memory is better for high resolution/details) for less money and at the same time with the same level of performance, the rest is ok, that will be one fast rig for sure !!!

***You should really pick a nice soundcard if you plan on headset gaming however on amplified speakers that's less a trouble (but that will help with some high-end speakers too)

If you're using the G35, it has it's own sound built in and plugs in USB, so you don't need another soundcard.

I'd go with the 3770k over the 3820. And unless you are going to SLI the 690 your PSU is a bit overkill. You could go with a good 850w and still have plenty of power.
