You want a SATA dvd drive... nothing should be IDE these days.

I think the video card is a good choice. I love XFX! I had a 7800gt go bad a long time ago, I used it for about 2years. When I sent it back, they sent me a brand new 8800gt free of charge. Their warranty service is great!

Seems like a decent build... If you just have 1 monitor 4gb is fine. If you play WOW while multitasking on a 2nd monitor, i'd pony up the extra money for 6gb kit.

also, check out zipzoomfly.com sometimes their parts are $5 to $10 bucks cheaper than newegg... so if you can save $5 dollars on each single component, it will compensate enough to get the 6gb ram
