Correct thats what i thought when I build mine a few weeks ago, decided to stretch muy budget a few hundred and get it over with it. Check the benchmarks to give you an idea of the increase of performance. When are you going to pull the trigger?

Awesome! For a single GTX 560 Ti is fine, unless you would want to add a second one in the future. You would need to upgrade your PSU if you add a second one in SLI. But for now the PSU is great for all the components you're getting.

No worries you can get the cooler after. The stock heatsink has preapplied thermal paste so dont worry, just seat on top and push the pins down. Just do put that much force when you install it. Have you seen any videos for building a pc?
