What're your current temps like? Atmospheric temps do matter. Though a 680 SC doesn't add too much more heat alone (in SLI is when things get hairy)

I'm not sure, I haven't built it yet :) ...I'm very new to pc building so I don't know too much...I just wanted to make sure I can buy this card and not have to get a better cooler...I can handle buying a few more fans if I have to...do you think I could get away with that?

No youll be good with what you have now most likely. A normal 680 and 3570K is totally good to go on stock coolers in even an open environment, so with your good case and CPU cooler to keep that a non issue, your 680 SC should have fine temps.

Of course, if you arent satisfied even after you build it, you can always buy more fans afte the fact.
