That is a nice, nice build all around. Lots of good choices.

1. The TX 750 is a good choice - I don't recommend skimping on the PSU - that is one area where you really do get what you pay for and brand is as important as anything. Corsair makes solid PSUs - both of my systems have a TX 750 in them.

2. Watch the heat sinks on your RAM if you plan to use a cooler - get this instead:

3. Add an aftermarket cooler like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And then you're good to go.

No - 750 will be plenty, you'll never use the full extent on a 1K+ PSU on any GPU setup - 750 should be able to handle a 570TI setup easily. If you're concerned you can calculate your minimum needed wattage here: http://support.asus.com/PowerSupplyCalculator/PSCalcula...

Actually it says 950 to be on the safe side, maybe try this for your PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
