Thanks for all the quick responses!

@Adzsask - I went back and pulled up the GTX480's on Newegg, and was surprised at what I saw. I had no idea the specs were so comparable to the GTX570!

@SugarJ and jibz - Good to know about the TIM. I'll probably just use what the CoolerMaster comes with and go from there. And that ASUS board came very highly recommended to me, so it's great to hear that it's easy to work with. :)

@Bond007 - I actually had originally chosen the 2600K for that reason, but Newegg just started their Spring Sales Event. The 2700K is only $5 more expensive at that point, so I figured why not. I can just as easily drop back to the 2600K if I miss the sale.
