were you going to overclock the CPU? If not I would't invest in an expensive aftermarket cooler, you could get a nice one for $30~ at newegg

also monitor wise, if your building this for gaming you might want a better one and less expensive. I'll list 3 choices based on sizes. All are 1920 x 1080
21.5" Asus 2ms - $159
23" Asus 2ms - $179
23.6" Asus 5ms - $189

also I don't know much about this brand, but they have a special until 8/8 if you use the promo code. Not bad for the price.
23" Hannspree 5ms LED BackLight - $159

Hope I helped you a bit, I'm in the process of building a gamin rig myself. Good luck!

+1 for the above stated asus monitor.
I would get an cooler master haf 922 case , pretty nice case.

16gb ram, what you are doing with that, you can go with 8gb ram for gaming and heavy apps.

Only thing I would change is that monitor to

Asus 24inch 1920x1080 2ms @ $199 with a $10 off promo code to put it at $189! promo ends 8/8

1920x1080 @ 2ms > 1920x1200 @ 5ms with nearly $100 more in cost :p 

well i think 5ms is fast enough i have one and i have yet to have any lag. also the 2 570's would kind of be wasted if he was only using a 1080p monitor.

I own a 5ms 23.6inch acer but still that is a way better deal for the 24inch asus :o 

it isnt really in the same ballpark though. i was looking for a monitor that would use all of the 570's power. 1080p doesnt do that. it would just be way overkill.
