In addition to the Kingston SSD, what do you think of the ASUS DRW-24B1ST 24X SATA DVD Writer OEM Black instead of the Blu-Ray drive ?

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS DRW-24B1ST 24X SATA DVD Writer OEM Black - DRW-24B1ST Bulk In Canada.

I don't plan to watch blu-ray on my computer.

I stronhly recomend the Samsung DVD drive. If you are a heavy burner they seems to last longer than most of the other brand. Nice choice on the SSD. Very decent unot for the price.

I don't do burning, in fact, I just need a reader ;)

if you wont use the extra threads, go with the 2500k.

try to go with seasonic,corsair for psu. same wattage.


gpu is expensive...try to dig a 6950 and unlock or not.300 shipped if the special still stands.

swap the black for a green 2tb, its for storage no?

at that price you can get the 600t...or for half the haf 922 if youre into military look :)

I'd really go for 8gig... u prolly won't use em all but they're cheaper than your 4gig DD3 1600... faster clocked but again will u see such huge difference ? I'd also save money on the case. But killer build you will have for sure !
