Also, I decided to go with the Xion III Gaming Mid-Tower 420W Case, but I upgraded to 500 watts. Would they simply replace the 420W in the case with the 500w? Or is there a problem there?

Are you going to be doing SLI, if not then choose a P35 board.

before you said you only play some light games, so just go like dual 8600gt's or something, but if you have money you could go dual 8800gt's...and i don't think tri-SLI is really necessary, but if you want you could get a tri-sli compatible board for later on if you want...

Thanks. Also, can a NEC 7170A 18X DVD+-RW Drive Dual Format Dual Layer burn CDs/DVDs?

Only the 8800GTX and 8800 ULTRA are compatible with 3-way SLI.
