everything looks good, but if you are going to overclock the ram, you should get Samsung Wonder Ram.
as for the CPU and GPU, no one can tell you how far you can overclock because all chips are different, but for the CPU, expect something above 4GHz and the GPU, expect something above 1.1-1.2 GHz

A 650w power supply with 680's in SLI? I don't think so.

Regarding AMD vs. Nvidia cards, singly the AMD cards are excellent and comparable (and sometimes slightly better than similarly priced Nvidia cards), however, SLI vs. Crossfire, SLI has less overall micro-stutter. If you plan dual cards in the future, 670's or 680's are a better option for gaming.

orly? check out this article

Measured power consumption two cards in SLI

System in IDLE = 155W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 473W
Difference (GPU load) = 318W
Add average IDLE wattage ~20W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 338 Watts
while a 750W is recommended, you could get away with a really efficient 650W.

A quality 650W is more than enough, they use les s power than 570s, which could also run on a 650W PSU

I ran 680's in SLI with a heavily overclocked cpu and measured the draw. 650w would be right at the edge of it's capacity. You really want to run a power supply at 90-95% of it's capacity for any length of time?

When you heavily overclock your CPU and GPU, you are increasing the power draw, I know you know this, but I was informing other people who will be reading this post. If you want to heavily overclock both your CPU and GPU, a 750W is normally recommend, but a quality 650W is fine for modest overclocks.

It's just a name, there's obviously going to be people who don't overclock.

Also, no way in hell are you going to get away with crossfire 670/680/7970's. If you plan too get a dual GPU setup in the future, invest in a good 700 - 800 PSU.

Power output is up to 480W.

Updated it.
I'll be sure to get a 750W+ supply.

I do still plan on overclocking it, just staying between 4.1-4.5. So went with the 212 Evo

Took your advice went with the Sapphire HD-7970 Ghz because it had the best reviews and 2 DVI ports under the price point of $450 for any HD-7970.

Decided to keep the RAM (already bought it for $40 on a newegg sale) and the possibly excessive CPU.

Let me know if you have any more advice or pointers.

Edit: I read somewhere that dual graphic cards only give 125% of one, which makes me less excited to have two in the future. That number could have just been referring specifically to HD-7950 though.

Power draw from SLI MSI Lightning GTX680s ....

Edit: It was a bit of a shocker, went to try with 2600k at 4.5Ghz, 2 x 680L at 1400/1752, +100mV. Got a full rig shutdown in gt1, 1080W showing on the meter. Tried cards completely stock volts & clocks (ln2 bios), pulls 756w from the wall.
OCed +100 on the core & +499 mem (1307/1752), no added volts, 820w from the wall. Added 50mV with same clock, 900w from the wall.
Only extras attached to the mobo are 2 case fans & 1 ssd. Cooling is externally powered.

Just so you know that if you overclock these, power consumption escalates....

A single current generation card doesn't need 750W. My system, overclocked 2600K and overclocked GTX 680, pulls 450W at the wall running flat-out. Unless I missed something, the OP didn't plan to run SLI, that was brought up by someone else's comment. There is no need for the OP to get anything more than a 650W for a single card.
