Hi :) 

A Dvd ROM drive will PLAY cds and dvds....

A Dvd WRITER will play cds, play dvds AND write blank cds and write blank dvds...

Operating system, WINDOWS 7 64 bit .....

All the best Brett :)

^Agreed. MSI makes excellent (!) products, and I'm running one of their motherboards right now... they're of a better build quality than Biostar is for the price.

I have an OCZ ModXStream 600w power supply, and it's rock solid. Good choice with the same thing in 700w... once again, for the price, it's an excellent unit.

I'd hold off on buying a monitor online, unless you've gone to a store and looked at them first. There are subtle differences between monitor brands which you won't notice otherwise... some monitors just have a different look than others.

The Spinpoint F3 is also a nice hard drive for the money. Just to throw an alternative out there, though:

The WD RE4 is an enterprise class hard drive, and while it only has half of the capacity, you'll gain a little bit in reliability over Seagate's F3. If you feel you could use the extra space of the F3, though, then go ahead and get it; both drives are well built.

IMHO. $10 more grabs you a much high quality Corsair unit such as this
TX 650 V2 which is $69.99 after rebate -> $59.99 after $10 instant discount/
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That OCZ unit is fine but a tx v2 unit will run circles around OCZ in quality, stability, and efficiency.

Just more choices. :)

What they said ^ .. and you'll be good ... not a fan of the case but that a matter of aesthetics and at that price its tough to offer alternatives .. best of luck :)
