^+1.

Anyways, Pretty standard build. Looks fine to me.

For a gaming build that CPU is probably a bit over kill. You'll be fine with an Athlon X3 for quite a bit less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HOWEVER, if you plan to do vid editing,etc and play GTAIV, FSX,etc, then get the Phenom II.

That was the theory I went with as well. I very seldom use cd's or dvd's, but its nice to have some cheapass optical drive just in case (And for installing OS's).

lol. I thought OP was using a USB DVD RW (like me). I no longer put DVD RW on a system unless it'd doing vid editing,etc. I have 2x DVD burners (Got a cheap SATA>USB converter off ebay for them). Last time I needed to use a DVD on my every day working PC (E2180 @3.2) was.... about 9 months ago.
