for $200 I'd expect to get at least dual 580's.

For 2 570's a 750W is more than enough...

Also, I wouldn't pay more than $250 for a 570 (buy them used if you must for $220 or less)

Server vs. regular processor. Get regular one, Mobo is cheaper. Also, the 2600k is $199.99 in store if you have a Microcenter nearby.

Also, do you NEED a blu-ray drive? Do you have the software to even play Blu-Rays? OEM drives don't come with the software, just FYI.

I'd spend MUCH less on the peripherals and upgrade your GPUs... that's sad performance for a $2000 desktop...

Your case is good enough for air cooling that you won't need the H100, but with all the fans... well you are getting a HAF (high air flow) which means you kinda expect to have fan noise...

Software for blu-ray playback is $50 (PowerDVD, etc) -> with the price of drive + software, might as well buy a dedicated blu-ray player lol.

Well, again, depends on your current resolution, and with a budget of $2000, i'd expect to play on at least Ultimate with all eye-candy at 1080p

For used 570's Ebay or Overclock.net marketplace

Check out slickdeals.net too.
