More about build minute check updated
  1. Optical: Samsung SATA DVD Burner $23 shipped.

    GPU: Cheaper HD 5770 $163

    PSU: OCZ StealthXStream 700W $60 after rebate

    RAM: Slightly more expensive, but they have free shipping and will be a lot better: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115

    Other than that, I've got nothing else. Did you check for combos? There's also usually some kind of Bing cashback for Newegg, but you don't get that for 60 days.
  2. That optical drive has a lot of cons on it from the reviews so I don't want to risk getting a bad one. Switched to your PSU and RAM. Going to check for Combos now.
  3. Don't trust Newegg reviews. They're written by morons.

    DVD drives really have no effect on performance, but it's not like there's a big price difference in most of them. There are still lots of drives that are cheaper than the one you picked. Just look around for them.

    Alright makes sense, I'll look around.
