Get a X4 955BE instead. It'll run the same speed at the 975 for less money.

Maybe get slightly better PSU like Corsair TX.
And drop that H60, you are better with air cooling in this price range.
If you really want to watercool, be ready drop at least 160-200$ on it and get XSPC Rasa 750 RX240 or Rasa 750 RX360.

I can spend up to $1300. I want to be able to run games like Crysis 2, BFBC2, Skyrim and BF3 (I know the specs for the last two have not been published) as high as possible

With that much to spend you should be building a i5 system.

So, if in the last setup I replaced the 6970 for a gtx 570 at what setting should I be able to run games like Crysis 2, BFBC2, Skyrim or BF3 and at what FPS?
Sorry for all the question but I am really noobish about all this PC stuff =/
