the 4570 cpu is fine.

not sure about a GTX 970 at 2K ? depends on what you are running in fine detail.

You might want to ask in the graphics card section.

I recently upgraded from a GTX 970 to a GTX 1070, a single 970 is really good at 1080p but if you plan to play AAA games at 1440p you should really look at a 1070. That is the sweet spot.

You need at least GTX 1070 for 2k monitor , GTX 970 will struggle with 2k

Wait and buy GTX 1070 if you really want 2k monitor

Your i5 CPU will be fine with GTX 1070 on 2k, and on 1080p maybe would bottlenecking
