also you may have noticed that there is no gpu, well that's because I cant decide between the 570 for 250 or the 480 for 220 http://www.evga.com/products/prodlist.asp?switch=20
Any adivice on how to improve my build or save money would be very helpful, also is there any periphiels you might reccomend ie mouse monitor etc.
