Get the GA-Z77-UP5-TH: it has two thunderbolt ports that will enable you to use the finest Apple thunderbolt displays available, or to have a thunderbold case (some of them can handle, say, five GPUs, making possible for you to build a little rendering farm out of only one computer.

Also, i don't think the performance advantage of the GTX680 over the 670 justifies the price difference, so you might as well go with the GTX670.

All the best!

Should work. Another thing: keep in mind, since it's mentioned in your list: SLI isn't and won't be supported soon, so forget about it.

P.S.: Since 10.8.3 supports AMD 7xxx cards, perhaps you might as well consider a 7970, if you don't use pro apps that specificaly needs CUDA (like Octane Otoy). It's consistently reviewed as the most powerful consumer graphics card in the market, but bear in mind they're not as straightforward to get working as nVidia card, so if you go that way, read a lot!

well i was jus looking into parts for next build, but i dont think im goin to get the i7 even tho i can get one for $230 off microcenter.
Im thinking about jus getting an extra 8gb ram so i have 16gb total and sell my 650 ti and get the 670 4gb oc.
other than that would my 600 watt psu be enough?

EDIT:

Also the cpu corsair watercooler,
and a good fast SSD.
