This will be my first build and with so many component options its a bit of a stab in the dark for me for choosing them. If i have Missed anything, there will be any compatibility issues or if u have any advice Please let me know thank you.
I personally wouldn't spend that kind of money on peripherals - and to me the 3-D monitors are a bit expensive and a bit of a gimmick. They don't really add much depth to your game playing field. On a gaming rig you also won't use the 3770K to its' full extent.
There are no major incompatabilities, but a few things to think on.
Case is a bit of a lump. Well built, agreed, but more than you need. Something like a Corsair Carbide 500r would be good for your build, although nothing actually wrong with your choice.
Appreciate why you've selected i7, but you don't need it for gaming, and benefit for video work is not large, unless you are doing high end HD work.
The corsair H80, is not bad, but quite noisy. H100 is not quite as bad, and you can use quieter fans. To be honest, air coolers tend to be quieter, cheaper, and good performance.
The GTX 680 is very good GPU, but advantage over GTX670 is fairly small, considering the additional cost.
Given budget for build, may be worth getting bigger SSD. 128GB Samsung 830, or Crucial M4.
I know nothing about 3D equipment, so someone else would have to advise you there.
