It looks pretty good to me. I might suggest you up the power supply to the HX850 or maybe even 1000 watt PSU if you want to eventually SLI that 570.

Thanks elayman! I'll consider that. Encouraging that you didn't see any conflicts with my components.

Anyone else see any glaring errors or have any advice? Looking to pull the trigger soon...
