i recommend an sli or crossfire setup as you already got a 750w psu itll be an easy conversion. z68 boards also have seem to perform better and have more functionality if u decide to upgrade to a ssd in the future.

You could take the chip to a 2500k in case you ever want to overclock,
maybe an ssd if they're affordable down there yet for boot duty, but otherwise not a bad build mate

Everything looks great. I am personally partial to Western Digital hard drives so I recommend a black edition in place of the Samsung.

The other thing I'd suggest is an SLI motherboard for future upgrades:

It's a bit more, though I think it will be worth the money when you could just slap in another 570 when necessary.

I probably won't be overlocking or going with Crossfire/SLI. If do it though, it won't be sooner than later, but thanks I'll consider going with that motherboard even if I don't make use of that.
