I working on a new build but I want to replace two parts since I've been hearing from a lot of people that they aren't worth the cost or they arrive DOA. I'm pretty much dead set on this build other than the two parts which are the graphics card and the power supply. Money isn't an issue although I want to keep the price around the same range. Also I plan to over-clock this system when it shows it's age. Just tell me what you think and what I should get as a replacement. Thanks for the advice.
Here's my build

I'd suggest a similarly priced big air to the water cooler. Sandy Bridge doesn't really need water cooling, and air is much less maintenance!

this would work wonderfully:

It's ranked #5 at Frostytech:

a Single 570 GPU can get by with a 620-650W PSU. It needs 36amps on the 12v rails for the entire system.

this has 48a across its 2 12a rails, more than plenty, and as good a quality psu as you will find anywhere.
