I only need a 1 TB hd.

Why not the cheap 570 I found rather than that 560ti?

The prices of the things on umart (Southside Brisbane) and the prices can be lowered by like 20-60 dollars each part.

No problem, just pick an HD with 1TB -- perhaps a SSD for the OS and programs are not a bad idea, as you can save some money on umart.

The GTX560Ti I suggested you has 2GB against 1GB of the 570, and basically no difference in price.

From what I've heard, the 560ti 2gb will only beat a 1gb 570 IF your resolution is large. I will probably play at 1920x1200

Another question, should I be wary of gainward gpus? They are like 40-60 dollars cheaper then the rest. The only difference I can see is that it has a 2x less memory clockspeed.

Also, I'm not sure which monitor I should pick. I'm looking for a nice 1900x1200 or 1900x1080 one.

Woah, what? Get the 570 over the 560ti. Would make almost no sense to go 560ti. Actully, I'd go AMD but whatever.
