True, you won't need to upgrade for a long time, but you can still get great processors for hundreds of dollars less and it won't need to be upgraded for a long time. Some stuff is just overkill if you ask me.

For the burner, get this one:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...136-047&depa=1

It is compatible with all CDs and DVDs. As for the motherboard for your Athlon 64 FX-55 CPU, get this motherboard:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-487&depa=1

or this one without the dual SLi configuration:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-484&depa=1

http://www2.amd.com/us-en/recmobo/De...?queryID=92436

Everything is compatible. As for the power supply, anything higher than 400 Watts would be nice.

Do not use the fan and heatsink supplied with the processor. use a better brand and some arctic silver paste.

Okay, thanks guys for all the replies.

As to why I don't want to get a better video card, my friend might give me his 9800 Pro if he gets a new card, so I really don't need the top-of-the-line since I don't do that much intense gaming.

And as someone previously mentioned, I probably won't need to upgrade for a long time.
