That 650w psu isn't going to allow you to SLI two of those cards later on. Also I would look at a gtx 560 ti 448 core which when o/c puts you close to a stock gtx 580. A 750w psu will push two of those cards in SLI.

If I do eventually SLI, it won't be soon so the 650w should be good(if it can run a single 570) and for this reason,I am wondering if I should wait for the GTX 600 series series to release cards in my price range.Well the 680 could be fit(ted) into the system with some tinkering with lower end parts but I want the system to be balanced so I chose the 570 although I am hoping that the GTX 660,660ti or 670 gets released into my price range soon.

After looking at the benchmarks of the gtx 680 I would say waiting isn't a bad idea. A 550w psu will easily push a single gtx 680.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Nvidia-Kepler-GPU-GeFo... <---- That's the entire Kepler line up according to Toms Hardware.

Ivy Bridge is due out April 29th.

http://www.asrock.com/microsite/PCIe3/overview.html <----- Quick and brief rundown of Ivy Bridge, PCI-E 3.0 cards and the new gen boards.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/index.asp?s=1155 <---- Those are Asrocks Z77 and Z75 board line up so far...although they are going to add more boards here soon. Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI also have their boards ready to go. They all get released with Ivy Bridge.

http://www.anandtech.com/show/5626/ivy-bridge-preview-c... <---- Some Ivy Bride gaming benchmarks done with an i7. The Ivy Bridge i5 should run on par with the that i7.

So Ivy bridge on the 29th and 660 on the 12th.So apparently I will just wait.Thanks
