a MB with a Z68 chipset is what you are after

and the features you might use

The GTX 570 is out dated . Look at Radeon 78XX graphics cards instead .

Unlikely you will need a 750 watt psu .

Thanks for the quick reply but I would like to stick to an Nvidia card. Any suggestions besides 570? I mainly play sc2 and maybe diablo 3 later. Would also like to be ready to play future game releases.

The 570 is overkill for your game aim (no pun intended). Get the Radeon 6870.

nVidia has already released the GTX 680 . More 6XX cards are bound to follow shortly , but I havent been following the nVidia roadmap .
The newer cards will be 28 nm , run much faster and use less power .

Actually I'd suggest a Radeon 7850 if you're going for 570TI territory.

I'd also ditch the SSD unless you have a second HD you can use.

If you're going to do that I'd rather go for 64GB / 1TB than 128 / 500 - it is a bit of a trade for space on your primary but your larger files (games, movies, etc) are better stored on your SSD as you don't want to do anything to distort your SSD's read-write cycles.
