Okay so here is my final list of my build that I will be building this summer.
The only thing I know I am missing is a heatsink, and I wanted some you guys to recommend a few to me.
I already have a mouse, keyboard, case, and monitor so no need to worry about them.
Also if you guys can find better deals for the specified parts that'd be great!

The GTX 570 is one level above the 560Ti so you will get better performance from this card.

Don't worry, it has only been 2 hours

your build looks good for the most part. I would change the GPU and motherboard and maybe the RAM and PSU
and then add in an SSD
Heres some suggestions...
Motherboard:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU and no SSD:HD 7950 unless you can fit in an GTX 670

GPU and SSD: HD 7850 unless you can fit in an HD 7870 in the budget

Change the PSU to a 650w you wont need anything close to a 750w for your build

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 7850 is the best mid-range card out there and its cheaper than the 560 by $10 bucks

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Now you can use that extra money for a heatsink, i would recommend the 212 evo

I have my 3570k OC'd to 4.5 ghz with the hyper

Hi! go to my signature thread and look at the beast i have in the botton.... i ve try using it without the SSD because i was curious about the Performance diference between a HDD and a SSD and let me tell you...the diference was impresive until my games loaded, after that there was absolutly nothing diferent, so my advise in this case is that the OP cut cost from anywhere he can in order to fit a GTX 670 and a i5 3570k, after that nothing else matters, i am sure he can buy a SSD later, but now its not the time

Yes the SSD only helps on loading games, but have you tried running other programs on it? Have you done 3d modeling on an SSD vs HDD or animation and video editing?
Also, you cant really say those are the best parts for $1000 for him..your RAM can be cheaper for the exact same thing, you are spending $70 on a cooler when he only needs a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, your HDD is seagate, and he wants a bluray drive.
But I mean why are we arguing because in reality we suggested the same build minus the cooler and if you look closer I suggest a no SSD version and an SSD version.

What RAM do you suggest? and btw, that cooler is worth every penny, i have used it myself i woldnt change it for anything, except of course for a CNPS12X or a Waterblock :kaola:

Trust me... you dont want that SSD, a Vertex4, Samsung 830, Mushkin chronos deluxe, or something like that will be much better

Replace the motherboard with a Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 and the the PSU with this one

and i really suggest you not to buy a SSD at this moment, get a GTX 670 instead
