  1. i think putting in your budget may help
  2. Budget please.

    That CD drive is very, very noisy.
  3. At this point in time, I don't believe there is any reason not to go with a quad core CPU. Otherwise your choice seem ok.
  4. Looks good. ^+1 for a Quad if possible

    Imo, swap out the EA650 to a PC Power & Cooling 750 as it's only a few $ more when you consider the MIR.
    It's over kill, but it will allow you to CrossFire down the road if you choose to. Also if not goung to upgrade to dual GPU,etc consider a Corsair 550VX ($70 after MIR). Also your links are broken.

    Also OP do you plan to OC?

    As for router I use this one:
    High reliability and good speed. No wonder this has won 24 customer choice awards. Imo, consider a Wireless n as it is the future. I can't recommend a wireless n router as I have not used one.
  5. You can get the Caviar black 640GB for only $5 more with code:EMCLTLN34
