I am planning on building my first PC and I was wondering if I did the right things. No items are bought yet, so I am always open to new suggestions. I do have a budget of $1000 - $1100, not including the monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I have some questions down at the bottom.

There is no such thing as a cheap-ish PSU. It is either a good PSU or it is a garbage PSU that won't deliver power within specifications and could put thousands of dollars worth of other parts in danger from flawed power delivery.
Every good PSU will be $1 per 10w plus a premium for modular or semi-modular.
The only brands you should be looking at are Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, and XFX. Three of those are made by Seasonic and priced pretty similarly. Seasonic is the gold standard PSU brand and there is no good excuse to use something less than those 4 brands.
If you have to, cheap out on a video card slightly in order to get a good PSU.
AS Rock is a top tier motherboard maker, I would trust that board.
The GTX 570 is a top tier video card with a manufacturer suggested minimum power supply of 550w.
I wouldn't suggest going under that total.
I don't know if the deal is still available, but the XFX 650w used to be available for $60 after a $30 mail in rebate. I read many reviews on the PSU before buying it and they all show it to be top of the line.
If you want a reasonable cost PSU that is over the 550 required for bare minimum 570 usage, I would consider that.
If it were me, I wouldn't go less than 650-700w for a GTX 570, but that is just me. I would rather be safe than sorry.
Cool, thanks a ton Raiddinn. It looks pretty awesome, now all I have to do is actually get the parts and build it. I hadn't realized about problems with incompatibility between the PSU and everything else. Before, I was thinking about the ASUS Crosshair V Formula Republic of Games, but luckily I saw the compatibility issues with the Intel Processor. And I already checked the Motherboard to RAM thing, so thanks again!
