So I am getting close (within a week or two) of ordering parts for my new build! How do these look?

RAM: 3x2GB (6gb) ddr3 1600mhz
MotherBoard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R
PSU: RAIDMAX RX-850AE
Video Card: GTX 570
CASE: COOLER MASTER HAF 922



What do you think?

the LGA 1156 and 1366 platforms are about dead (x58).

you need to look at the newer LGA 1155 Sandy Bidge (Z68,P67 etc)

I wouldn't buy (new) last years tech if I was building a new rig.

i5-2500k, i7-2600k
GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P LGA 1155 (SLI) same grade as the x58 MB you chose.
Ram 2x2 or 2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws X or Corsair, Mushkin, DDR3 1600/1.5v
PSU: ok with your pick
Video Card: ok with the 570, but a good 560Ti may save you some $
Case: personal preference
