My father and I are going to build this setup, we haven't bought the parts yet, I'm wondering if you guys could tell me if this setup will. I am also not sure if a the power supply is sufficient enough for the parts.

Are you sure you want 560 ? and not 560 Ti
I mean your pouring a lot of money into mobo and spending less for GPU
and there are cheaper cases with same efficiency
also swap PSu for something better
and like Outlander said we can't tell unless u list ur resolution
maybe better option is to fill out form at the top of the forum and list ur proposed build below
Ok, this is my first time on the forums so I don't know where the forms are. What do you mean by a better PSu? Should I just use a 450 watt instead or something else? I changed the Graphics card to the Ti.
Son No. 3 has two of em .... he's upstairs playing BF3 right now.
I'd use an 850 watter for twin 560 Ti's and overclocking the CPU / GPU ..... and while CM makes great cases, the PSU's are not on may enthusiasts build list. I'd suggest as an alternative some of the following which will save ya some money to put on upgraded GFX cards and to my mind are better case/ PSU combos:
It is completely unmatched by any ATX unit on the market I can think of. You'd have to spend twice as much as this thing costs to find the next best thing, performance wise.
The pairing of the case / PSU results in extremely quiet and cool system.
The [pairing with the compatible Antec cases] is an obviously unfair advantage for the CP-850... but what of it? Antec has used an integrated systems approach for its CP-850 and its best cases, and if that approach is an advantage over all other case/PSU combinations, then, all the more power to Antec!
If ya don't like the Antec cases, another alternative is the Corsair 500R ($130)......with the 500R or the HAF's. I'd use the HX850 ($150) if ya want a 10.0 performance rating from jonnyguru .... the XFX Core Edition gets a 9.5 rating for $90.
No offense, but looking at the reviews & from my personal experience (however limited it may be), the 570 has a slight edge over the 6970.
But then again doesnt it depend on which game you're playing ? Some games are better with AMD and others on nVidia. Cant really judge. Besides, whichever card is better, the difference in performance between the two isnt that noticeable or huge. May be a variation of 6-7 frames per sec.
So, the 6970 may be better, but it sure as hell doesnt "kill" the 570.
