I am planning on getting an Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz for my computer and I was wondering if there were any requirements for having it such as needing x amount of power etc.

It is ~ a 77w chip. Most computers with stock power supplies should be able to run this without any problem. What is your current setup?

My graphics card is a: 2048MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 6570 (Diamond)

My mother board is a: FOXCONN 2AB1

I have 12GB of ram.

Is there anything I missed?

With that video card the recommended power supply is 400w however that is more than what is actually needed. I would guess most modern computers the stock power supply should handle that cpu, the video card and the rest without any issue. If you look at your power supply, what is the wattage output? If you have at least 350w you should be alright with that setup.
