Gigabyte HD 7970 – gpuShack

[Build Ready] ~1200$ Gaming/Bitcoin minner

I'm trying to build a good computer for Programming, light-mid gaming, and general use (internet, word, ext...). Additionally, since I find myself in the somewhat unique situation of not having to pay for electricity I was also planing on mining bitcoins. This is why I spend so much on a very good GPU, which I also plan on overclocking.
I was told that the case I chose has very good cooling, but I'd like to know whether or not you think I will need an additional fan for the GPU as I will be overclocking it.
I would also like feedback on the power source I have chose, as I am really unsure in that area.
This is my first build, so I'm looking for as much feedback as possible so feel free to comment on anything.

Edit: Changed motherboard
Edit 2: I'm unsure between Sapphire Vapor-X and Gigabyte GV-R797TO-3GD or the non GHz Edition of each. Also, I'm unsure if my cooling system is sufficient.
Edit 3: Updated build
