Parts Not Required: Monitor, Keyboard Mouse, Case and power supply (Friend is giving it to me so i don't know specifics) Hard drive

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: New egg, i get a slight discount when i shop there

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Intel and nvidia are my 2 most trusted brands.

You'd better check to make sure - the 570 requires a minimum of a 600W PSU and you need to be sure that its' certified and rated at least 80+ bronze or better.

As great as this card is you should really take a good look at the 7950 and 7970 - both cards are currently owning 3-D Mark records and they will continue to for quite a while.

Otherwise the build looks pretty good.
