So far thats it.

We have gone through several different builds over the past few days, lol

Anyways, were wondering about a Cd/DVd drive set. Because I really dont know what to look for other then speeds.. Help on this topic would be appreciated.

As for the rest of the build, im still looking it all over, and searching through options.

There are several threads going on about a few different things on different parts of the different builds, lol..

the best drive (for me) is the plextor 716 slot loading, it looks incredibly slick, and the slot loading is gangsta', however i dont think it would be concurrent with your budget so here is a great alternative:

Oh Jesus christ man ECS?! I work for a company that makes that crap, you have to be insane to use that hunk of junk, spend the extra $$ and do this right. Gskill memory is nice if you buy their quality line, but the value is junk. Just an FYI that powersupply in the case you picked is as good as that aftermarket one you choose, the one in the case is 28amp on the 12v rail, and the one you picked is 31amp. Just about the same.

i would just get 2 gigs of ram instead. it's more bang for your buck right now. 90 dollars for 1gig or 150 for 2 gigs? that's the reasoning i use, may not apply to your budget though. however, if your budget doesn't permit it, 1 gb is fine.
