I am thinking on this for my build. Any feedback and recommendations would be awesome. The total price currently is around $1100 and I don't want to go over $1200. Suggestions where I can cut down on price without sacrificing performance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

Here's some different ways to cut cost although there are several more if you play with the combo's on newegg. The deal is you need for forget about that power hog of a 570 and think new generation vid card along with your cpu. It's 2012 right now and you don't want older tech for a new build.
