Should I buy OEM? Does it come with all the cables necessary for a build?
If you're gaming 12 GB of RAM is overkill, the SSD is a good choice as well as the 1.5 TB HDD as a media drive. Remember that OEM BluRay drives don't come with software and Win7 doesn't natively support blurays, so you'll need ~$100 software to play blurays. Other than that, good build imo
I'll use the RAM for CAD, so that's my reason for so much
So, what drive would you recommend? Blu ray is probably too expensive for what it is at the moment, so when win8 or win7 updates come along for blu ray, I'll get it then.
Any brand name dvd writer will do i picked up 2 Samsungs for 19.99 a piece.
