  1. forgot to mention i will be over clocking
  2. I would go with the i5-3570K and a Z77 motherboard instead.

    Also, at that price for a GPU, I would much much recommend the 7870 over the GTX570.

    You can also go for this power supply that is cheaper and pretty darn good.

    Also, 16GB of RAM is way way too much RAM for a gaming system. Just go with 8GB.

    If you are overclocking, go for a CPU cooler, such as the Hyper 212 EVO from CoolerMaster.
