I recommend windows 7 pro if you want to use any older windows xp files. I use word 2000 with my ultimate version. Dell charges $70 extra for it as an upgrade. You should be able to get a similar deal from cyberpower.

If you need to have two dvd writer drives then getting two from different brands is recommended.. Its because some drives might work better with certain media.. For ex., I've always found LG dvd writers to read scratched media better as compared to sony.. As a second pointer, you do not require that much power for your rig (unless You've major upgrade or overclocking plans of course).. A corsair VX 550 watt PSU will be sufficient.. If music is your primary objective over gaming then i recommend you getting an asus xonar dx sound card instead of the creative x-fi xtreme gamer..
