So I guess this is where the platform question comes into play:
i7 990x, or i7 2600k, or perhaps even wait for the i7 3690x
In most cases, the i7 2600k outperforms the i7 990x. At less than a third of the price, it's a no-brainer choice: Get the i7 2600k.
Looking over the rest of your options, I'd recommend two 1TB Spinpoint F3 instead of one 2TB Spinpoint F4. They'd perform far better and you'd have some degree of redundancy for your data storage, depending on configuration.
I'd choose a GTX 570 over a GTX 580 because the performance increase simply isn't worth the extra money.
If you get a SSD, get the one that I recommended earlier. It's incredibly fast and reasonably affordable.
You can go for a smaller, higher-quality PSU based on any of the components that you have chosen. Look at the AX 750
if you want to retain dual-GPU capability, otherwise the SeaSonic that I recommended earlier is ideal for a single-GPU system.
Also - lol @ Zee_Meister. The object is to build the best system, not spend the most money.
