If you're not gaming..

If you're not into gaming, no big deal; and if you have no plans to buy a newer 4K resolution display during the life of your new system, no big deal

I'm just a bit surprised that you went with an older generation GTX 5xx series video card, given the other components in your system, when for very little cost difference, you could buy a newer generation card that's faster and has support for higher resolution displays, newer OpenGL versions, newer PCIe 3.0 bus speeds, etc.

For use with apps like CS6, the GTX 560Ti is more than fast enough.  But, if I were spending that much on a new system, I think I'd probably go with a newer generation video card for a bit of "future proofing"
