Default Part suggestions

So I want a new desktop by the new year (keeping an eye for deals), here's what I'm thinking for parts:

CPU Intel Core i5-3570K ~$220
Motherboard Asus P8Z77-V LE ATX ~$130
Memory (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ~$40
Storage Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ~$100
Storage Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ~$110
Video Card Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ~$400
Case Silverstone RV02B-EW ATX Full Tower Case ~$170
Power Supply Antec High Current Pro 750W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ~$90
Monitor Dell UltraSharp U2412HM ~$270

I need help on a few things.
  • Should I buy the GTX 680 instead?
  • Which i7 processors are good value?
  • Anyone have recommendations for good cases, motherboards or monitors?
