I am building my first gaming pc, and I am trying to spend around $800, the processor I have is the Intel Core i5-3570 and the gparhics card is the GIGABYTE GV-N660OC-2GD GeForce GTX 660 .
Will these work well together?

the 3570 will do you good. The 660, not so much. It's a last gen card and gets beat by lots of newer cards. With AMD's new cards being released today, I would wait till some benchmarks come in to see how it does against the current 7xx series of Nvidia.

The should work well together, although others may suggest a better deal.

An HD 7870 would give you better performance than the GTX 660.

the 660 is a perfectly good card and will play most games on high settings 1080p with good fps. Crysis 3 is not an easy game to max out but it will run it well on med-high settings.
