    First - if you're going to be dropping $1900 on a system, the classified would not be a good place to start. You could be buying products with voided warranties or things that have been altered in a way where the manufacturer won't support them and so on.

    Second a lot of this stuff you don't really need (2600K, 1866 RAM, OCZ Vertex in RAID 0) for a gaming system, and if you're getting the 570 - you should really wait for the AMD Radeon 7900's.

    This would be a better system:

    Case: Corsair Carbide 500R White - $139.99
    PSU: PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKII 950W - $149.99
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 - $254.99
    CPU: 3.30GHz Intel Core i5-2500K - $219.99
    Cooler: Noctua NH-U9B - $59.99
    RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 1.5V - $48.99
    SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - $199.99
    HD: Samsung Spinpoint 1TB - $149.99
    Optical: LG BD-R Drive - $59.99
    Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 580 - $499.99 (substitute for Sapphire Radeon 7970 when available)

    Total: $1779.83
