Default First time Builder (Gaming Rig)

Hello everyone, I'm interested in getting some feedback for a potential build. Nothing has been purchased yet as I am obsessing over price, value, taxes and shipping costs. This will be my first build and I am pretty much as green as they come. I've been doing small research for the past maybe two or three months, so please don't hesitate to provide info that may seem obvious.

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V Lk ATX LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 3PCI SATA3 SLI DVI HDMI DP USB3.0

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K Unlocked Quad Core Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Ivy Bridge 6MB Retail

PSU: XFX 650W PRO650W Core Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 53A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Bronze

RAM: Kingston KHX1600C10D3B1/8G 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL10 DIMM HyperX Blu

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB SATA 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache 3.5in Hard Drive OEM

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Black Mid Tower ATX Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB Sound

Biggest holdup seems to be the GPU as of now, more of an Intel/nVidia supporter but the HD7950 seems to be too good to ignore against my current sway:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti OC 1032MHZ 2GB 6.0GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card

So far, from Directcanada,
Sub Total: $867.70

Hoping not to cross $1100 after taxes/shipping. Thanks in advance!
