-1.The case you picked, is not so good. I am not really a fan of the fact that the PSU comes on top. It is hotter up there and less stable then on the bottem. Instead get this case.

-2.Get the AMD X4 955, The 965 is just an over-clocked 955.
-3.Get an 8 series chip, the 870 chipset is cheap and will do the job.
-4. Optical drive, i my opinion just get the cheapest DVD drive out there from Samsung. No uses those things anymore anyway.
