I would recommend,
Keyboard: Logitech G15 or the Saitek Cyborg. PLEASE don't go with the Reclusa. Anything from Razor will do you good. They are a bit expensive.
Mouse: Hands down the G5. (Opinion) You could get a Razor Deathadder or a Boomslang. They will run you around 80 and up.

Yes, DVD burners also burn CD's and play DVD's just fine.

Here's a good one in both IDE and SATA flavors:

SATA - LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model GH22LS30 - OEM

IDE - LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black IDE Model GH22LP20 - OEM

It's basically a different output. IDE is a very wide and flat cable. A SATA cable is small and skinny. Most people go with SATA. It's very easy to manage the wires and it doesn't take up a lot of space. When you order OEM, it's just supposed to be the main parts. Sometimes you get lucky and get the extras. I did when I ordered my DVD drive.

Put a little bit more money in and get this hard drive.

I decided I'm going to get the Razer mouse and Razer keyboard with the blue lights.

If you get a SATA optical drive, then yes. Man, how much money are you putting into this computer? What type of stuff do you usually do/play?

We'll I'm a dj, I'll be using it to do some audio production & editing but for the most part just to play video games. I've escalated my 2k budget to 2.5k, but im hoping to get some deals to keep it around 2k even.

if i have enough $ left over im probably gonna buy a ps3
