And i want to know what u think:

The most intense game i would play on it is "Age of Empires Online" and Age of Empires 3....Age of Empires Online was made in 2010 and is a newer game than age of empires 3...Would I be able to play these games full quality with no lag for sure u think? And what do u think of this set-up altogether for a low budget...Would u change anything IE...(CPU/GPU/Mobo), but not for some ridiculous price, for around same price as the others on newegg.ca

for a psu you should look at 400-450 watts
you are missing what kind of ram you will be using

my mobo suggestion
$80 ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and ram
$47 Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S00

if you are tight on the budget you can downgrade to 4gigs and get the 7750 for $40 more than the 5570

It still works...
AM3+ = support for AM3 and AM3+
AM3 = support for AM3

Also, what resolution will you be playing at? My recommendation is to sell the card and get a llano APU because it'll do better than your 5570. What's your total budget?

I would go for Intel instead of AMD because Intel officially beats AMD at every price point now.
