Video card is a no-brainer: - Sapphire Radeon HD 7870
BD-R burner: - LG BD-R Burner
HD: - Seagate 1TB
PSU: - Seasonic X750 Gold
RAM: - Kingston Hyper X

Total: $785 - you can use the difference to get either a nice SSD or a good cooling solution.

The 570 is a good choice, but now the 7870 easily eclipses it:

OCZ PSUs are very questionable reliability at best, and I do not recommend getting the Vengeance RAM with the tall heat sinks as that will interfere with any aftermarket heat sinks you plan on using.

Try these:

PSU: - Corsair TX750
RAM: - Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB
Video Card: - Sapphire Radeon 7870
