That is quite a machine you are building. I have always preferred the Corsair HX series for power supplies. I own the HX1000 but the HX850 will be plenty for your Dual 680's when you decide to get the second one. Also I am not sure how much the 12GB kit of ram is that you are purchasing but you can get a 1600 MHZ 16GB Vengeance kit from corsair, for under 100 dollars. I prefer the low profile ones.
Just a heads up, the HX1000 is on sale right now for cheaper than the HX850. it's 100 dollars off, quite a steal if you are looking to get a powerful power supply. Don't know if it will last too long before it gets sold out.
Corsair Professional HX1000W 1000W ATX 12V 80A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan - Corsair - CMPSU-1000HX
And here is the ram I mentioned.
Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 16GB 4X4GB DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit - Corsair - CML16GX3M4A1600C9
(currently 102 but I seen them for just under 100 at around 95 or so)
The H100 is also on sale right now for only 10 dollars more than the H80. Not a bad upgrade for 10 dollars if you don't mind spending an extra 10 bucks.
Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance CPU Cooler System LGA1366 2011 1156 AM2 AM3 - Corsair - CWCH100
and just out curiosity, what tower are you housing your stuff with ? :)
