It will work. I got a gt640 with weaker system parts than what your have (i got a 300w PSU Core 2 quad)

The CPU/ mobo is overpriced.
The PSU is total crap. Get one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, or Seasonic.
Don't expect to play games past low settings with that GPU.

What is your budget?

Yeah, this is much more worth your money... Listen to jnkweaver. The only thing I would get diff.is an i5 ivy br. cpu just to have 4 cores. I also prefer nvidea but if you are on a budget and cant afford a 600 series card, check ebay for for a gtx 570. They are going for around $170 as people upgrade to 600 series and sell their 500 series cards

Don't get an i5, it will eat up too much of the GPU budget.

Don't get an old, past generation GPU like the 570. They use ALOT of power. Get something modern like an hd 7850.

I didn't really see a budget..

I run two evga gtx 570's in sli on a z77 mobo with i7 3770k o.c. on an corsair 620 watt psu with no problems. The 500 series cards were great until the 600 series came out and what, now they are worthless? I play all the new games maxxed out with no problem. So what is it I'm doing wrong?

I guessed on his budget based on what he was asking about. I just tried to get the cheapest decent low build. Since he was going to spend $70 on that old card, spending $97 on a much better card is an easy go.

The i3 just because a low budget. I got the cheapest full ATX Z77 board.

The case he picked and the power supply is because I am leary of the Corsair builder series going for $30. The psu I suggested is a Tier 1 and modular which should help him keep a clean build.

I understood your motivation... I think it was a good reply to the OP!
