It sounds like either the motherboard , GPU, or power supply is bad.
[A power supply can look like it's working but not be well enough to start the unit.

How did the problem start ?
OCZ StealthXstream 700W,Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R , E8500, Arctic Freezer Pro 7, 3GB G.Skill PC8500,Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 OC [1GB ], Seagate 250GB SATA II X2 in RAID 0, Samsung SATA DVD burner.
