Looks like an awesome build. I did a build for a friend not too long ago using that case. I really liked it, well built.
The only thing I would add is a small SSD to load your operating system and frequently used programs on.

Also, why the wireless card? Is hard wired ethernet not an option?

Welcome to OCN! Nice setup should be wicked for games. For the PSU IMO on the GTX570 you can do with a nice 700 Watt or 650 Watt for your setup. Not sure if you going to overclock or add another card though.

Yeah, I'm on the 2nd floor, and we work on wifi.

Also, how much of a speed advantage would an SSD give me?

I'm going to be SLI'ing two GTX570's in the future, will 850 watts give enough power?

That machine without an SSD is criminal. Get one big enough for your OS and your games-of-the-moment and you will not regret it one bit. Everything loads so much faster you will think you're missing something. My rig isn't even as fast as that one and I boot in 13 seconds flat. Most games can load in a few seconds, barring the loading theatrics.

So around how big should the SSD be? I'm not sure about OS sizes and all that...

850 for two GTX 570's can work.
