I've got a couple reasons I personally rather not use AMD at the moment. I'm not a fan boy of Intel and their high prices, but for the thing I'm working on, it happens that Intel Cpus have better support.

NVM on the case since you're getting the CM690 for cheap

Cheap GPU: Radeon 5830

Yes the 5830 is slightly better than the 5770.

If you are getting that z68 motherboard its crossfire ready. I would recommend you get a 600 watt psw instead so later down the road when the hd 5830 is cheaper you can always crossfire without the need to upgrade your psw.

I would rather get these ram (1.5V) instead you don't really need 2133 mhz ram (1.6V), even though the motherboard say it supports 2133 mhz, I have a feeling its OC ram:

If money is the concern I would definitely hold off on the cpu cooler. save yourself some money for now, since the stock i5-2500k is plenty enough power.

When you get some more $ saved up then invest in another 5830 for CF and then get a much better cooler (corsair h80 and h100 is coming out soon) to OC, then you be able to really max out crysis 2 to an extent

Thermaltake PSUs in general are like lottery...some average, some garbage. The one you linked to is something I wouldn't bother with, especially for Crossfire:
