The build will work.

As for parts changes, CoolerMaster PSU's generally aren't recommended, so id suggest looking into something from either XFX, Corsair, OCZ, SeaSonic, Antec.

RAM - The RAM you have chosen is fairly basic, so id suggest looking at something 1600MHz (Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill RAM)

The motherboard also seems very pricey, theres much cheaper ones with the AM3 socket. However i havent looked into AM3 Boards myself so maybe it is worth the price and im missing something?

I cant really comment on the motherboard since im not too familiar with AMD products. The RAM looks good, but the PSU - ive not seen many people on TOMs go for the GS range. Usually people tend to go with TX or HX - check out some reviews for the GS range or wait for a few more replies here. JonnyGuru is a great site which reviews PSUs.

Ok, thanks. Btw, Is this computer capable to play Crysis 2 with dx11 patch? And max settings.

Yes, with ease. A single GTX 560Ti can run it maxed out so 2 will destroy it :D 

And yes, very popular and very highly rated PSU.

So I don't need 2 of them?
August 2, 2011 4:57:06 PM

Or Should I change them to one gtx 570?
August 2, 2011 5:01:07 PM

To use SLI you have to have the same cards. So you cant have a GTX 560 and GTX 570 they both need to be either 560's OR 570's.

You could get a single GTX 570 now, or even a single GTX 580 which will allow for great future expansion if you decide to SLI either of those in 6months-a year down the line, and they will both play all current games maxed out with at least 30 fps on a single card.
August 2, 2011 5:03:31 PM

I meant that is single gtx 570 more powerful than 2x gtx560?
August 2, 2011 5:06:27 PM

Oh yes. I think that I can do something. But thanks for helping

If I were you, I would go ahead and get an AM3+ board, as they are actually in the same price range now, and just be ready to upgrade without worries whenever you choose.

Is Asus Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ ATX ok?
August 2, 2011 7:29:49 PM

Ok. Found out that In german I can buy 2x GTX570 for nearly same price as 2x GTX360 in finland. So i'm now using 2x GTX370
