Default Build has begun, need some help

So I went tonight and bought the first few things for my new build.
I got a Corsair 650D as my case
Corsair h100i for cooling
a intel 3770 CPU
and a corsair 850 ax pro fully modular power supply, think i remember all the names properly all the stuff is downstairs in my living room.

Now I am going to go in the morning and buy a Motherboard (around $300) what should I get?
A video card, thinking nvidia 680, a asus one? whats the best to go with?
and I need RAM, I like the corsair dominator platinum 16GB (4x4)DDR3 1866Mhz CL9 kit, does that sound good?

I am thinking for a video card GTX680 Direct CU II GeForce GTX 680 4GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort
Is there a better option? I'm willing to spend $600 on the video card.

Help ASAP, I work up north in the oil sands and I am on my one week off before i go back for another 2 weeks or 3 weeks of work, and I want to get some game time in before I go back to work, so Ill be buying the rest of the parts tomorrow.
