Looks great, I might go a with a 750 watt PSU in case you want to SLI (although unlikely for most people.) 80 plus gold is good for power saving and lower ambient heat, so maybe that on the PSU. You might want to wait for Nvidia kepler, it's gonna have better performance to cost ratios. That's about all I have to suggest. Also, if it's for gaming the 2600k is sort of out of place because of the hyper threading, it's an extra $100 for something you probably won't use.

A Z68 chip set motherboard is more versatile .

Intel recommend the 2500K for gaming builds

Use a bigger SSD . 64 gig will let you install windows and 3 [ maybe 4 ] games

In a few days the Radeon 7850 and 7870 will be available . Even if you stick with the GTX 570 prices will drop because at current prices its not going to be good value

I do plan to use it for gaming, although im thinking of only installing Windows in the 64 GB SSD.
