  3. It seems good, you might want a 1TB hdd though : http://www.amazon.com/WD-Blue-Desktop-Hard-Drive/dp/B0088PUEPK/

    The rest is good, you're missing also a dvd drive, if you don't have one : http://www.amazon.com/Lite--Super-AllWrite-Layer-Drive/dp/B002YIG9AQ/
  4. Yep, you're good to go. I'd highly recommend buying an SSD, though. It'll make a BIG difference as to how fast your computer "feels."

    (Oh, and don't get windows 8 unless you've tried it and LIKE it. It's still got a fair number of compatibility issues.)
  5. definitely SSD would make a great addition

    as well as upgrade the cpu cooler to at least an EVO 212 from coolermaster, it'll be worth the money. (30$only)
  6. OK so i added
    Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive - Bulk - IHAS124-04 Version C (Black)

    Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan (RR-212E-20PK-R2)

    Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm Blue LED Computer Case Fan (R4-LUS-07AB-GP)

    I am going to wait on the ssd for now
