Solution
Replace your board with this better one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131759
and replace your case with this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008
Replace your PSU-Corsair with Antec PSU - 600Watts is fine if you dont plan SLI
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044
For same price on GPU, there's a faster+better GPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125382
For your SSD, Get OZC Vertex 3 120GB Max IOSP or at least 120GB because 64GB is kinda low and you can fill it up with 3 games added(Games usually takes 10GB+ if it's like Black Ops or BF2/3 for example)

Hello :) You have a nice build but I would seriously consider on buying a new monitor. With your resolution, you would be only using at best 50% of your gaming rig. It's best to get at least to a 1680x1050 or a 1920x1080p.

Your PSU is overkill for what you're planning. get a 600 watt. This comes with a free asus dvd burner saving you alot of money.

If you want to save more moeny at the expense of a slight loss of performance that i don't think you'll notice. Get the 560Ti. The 570 is just too overkill for games today.

Get the money saved for a better monitor at least 1680 x 1050p please. You'll regret it if you don't buy a better monitor.

I must have saved you $150 bucks. Buy a good monitor at least 20 inch

Note: Your Crucial SSD did a write of 100MB/s which is low...

Performance:

Sustained Sequential Read
Up to 415 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s)

Sustained Sequential Write
Up to 95 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s)



EDIT: That ASRock Board Won't oc at all(It will but wont work on some). The BIOS and overclocking options are very buggy right now(As people said). So you have to use software to OC which is not good....

SSD will load your windows from the touch of the power button to windows in 8 second(With everything loaded)... SSD will last longer than a HDD which is cool too because i dont want to lose all my data after 2 years of filling it up with my homework for school lol(For example)...
