What's your budget?

additional information that'll really help
1. Do you plan on SLI in future
2. As DeusAres said...your budget
3. Do you plan to OC (your current mobo choice supports it but cpu does not)?

add this info and someone would be able to suggest PSU and case and whether your cpu-mobo combo is the best bang for buck...

^ His CPU can OC. Not by much though and its cause it doesnt have an unlocked modifier. :)

^ True that.. :)  but then again the very limited BCLK tweaking, is possible with H67's I think (do correct me) and they'd cost him less..

i'm looking to spend around $800, sorry thought i put that in the OP.
i'm not planning on SLI and i'm not too interested in overclocking but i'm not against it, so if there's a better deal involving OC then by all means

Here, try something like this...

Just use the above as a base build. If there's something else that suits your interest, feel free to change it.

If you want to save a few dollars, you can just change the 3570k to a 2500k. You'll lose out on the new ivy bridge features such as pci 3.0, but considering you won't be doing SLI or crossfire, you won't particularly need it. Also, the 2500k doesn't run as hot as the ivy bridge; therefore it'll be much easier to access higher overclocks.

the PSU I recommended is actually modular as well. This should help with cable management.

I changed the RAM to gskill sniper so you won't run into clearance issues with the hyper 212's massive heatsink.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

i have one question though. would you recommend shelling out the extra $$ for the 560 ti or just sticking with the Radeon?

If you can afford it, go with the 560ti.
