The PSU maybe a little over kill. But still very nice!

Only thing I would change is the GTX 670, and get a 7970.

Seems like a pretty solid setup you've got going on. 4.5GHz on air is doable but I'd recommend some type of liquid cooling, maybe throw on a Corsair H60 or H80 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181016) then 4.5GHz won't be a problem

Also, consider using a SSD, they get pricey but its worth every penny IMO. One of the best upgrades I've ever purchased.

Speaking of SSD, i just purchased myself a WD black 1tb hdd, and i downloaded all my stuff on it, but first of January I want to get a samsung 840 pro SSD 256gb, when i do and install it would it be possible to install my windows onto it from disc and use the SSD to boot windows, and not from my WD HDD? and transfer a game like WOW to it?

Yes you'll be able to install windows on it from a disc just like any other HDD, then you'll most likely want to format your 1TB HDD and use it as a storage drive. WOW is easy to transfer, just copy the game directory (c:\program files\world of warcraft\, usually) and copy it to your SSD after windows is installed. Your computer will feel a lot faster all around, Samsung 840 is a nice drive

Depends what size case you want and what kind of budget you've got. From my experiences Corsair cases have really good cable management, I hear good things about Lian Li as well. It's good that you're going with a modular power supply, that will help
