  1. Other than adding a DVD burner, i think that's it.
  2. You can get a better PSU and Mobo for less. A Corsair TX650 costs $90 and the Gigabyte Z68 mobo for $164 is one of the best you can get.

    Check the $1000 build in my sig.
  3. if you have a microcenter near by you can get the cpu for cheaper ($179.99)
