Hi, I'm going to build my first gaming PC so I don't really know much about it, but after some research I have come up with this setup:

Case: NZXT Phantom

Processor: Intel Core i5-2500k Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

Motherboard: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

Graphics Card: EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570

Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB

Power Supply: RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V

Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1

DVD Burner: SAMSUNG SH-222AB - OEM


As I said before I will use this PC mostly for gaming, and will be running games like CoD 4, BFBC2, BF3, Skyrim, Fallout NV, The Witcher 2, Crysis 2, etc... at a resolution of 1920x1080 and I would like to do so with the best graphic settings available at the highest FPS I can get. I know 850w is a bit overkill but I will probably get another evga 570 for sli.
So what I would like someone to tell me is if you think all the parts listed above will work well togheter and run this games at least at high settings with a single 570 and maxed out with 2 570s (I know BF3 and TES V haven't released their system requirements, so I just ask for a guess).

Thank you very much I hope this isn't very tedious :p

Change that PSU to one by Corsair, Antec, Silverstone or Seasonic. I don't like ASRock motherboards, but it's your choice. I'm an Asus/Gigabyte person myself.

If you can try and stretch to a 580, when you're at this level you may as well.

Otherwise you'll more or less be fine for BF3 and Skyrim, though nothing can be said for sure.

Well I was taking a look at some motherboards and I decided to replace the AsRock for this one:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

Thanks

Btw, how much wattage will the PC require? Will 850w be enough for 2 evga 570? because I was checking some site's power calculators and some say I need around 1000w!! >.<
