    Firstly the Ram is: Memory: 12GB (2GBx6) DDR3/1600MHz Triple Channel Memory Module (Corsair or Major Brand), as you already said above?

    I would advice searching around other pc buiders because you can get 2nd gen I7 2600K for cheaper then the I7-960 and its like 4 times faster.

    The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 will handle most new games (not at the highest settings) but if you want a really powerfull computer that will cut through any game, choose either 3x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 or 2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 or one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 and with Radeons atleast 2x HD6970 or one HD6990

    Don't worry about it.
    The chances are 99% certain that the post is straight out spam. Some advertising and product placement for the system builder.
