CD/DVD/BD Drive:
ASUS BC-12B1ST Internal 12X Blu-Ray Reader & 16X DVD Writer Combo Drive SATA OEM *IR-$5* - $60.13 ($65.13)


Total price = $1848,36 with sale items. ($1969,29 without sales)

Wasn't sure if we could include monitors or not, so I just went with the "best" I could think of that fitted within $2000. Otherwise I would've taken a cheaper CPU (4670k), a 120GB SSD(same model just lower capacity), only one HDD(black for games, can live without the greens) and no BD drive in order to take a proper IPS/PLS monitor... Oh well, let's go with that, my chances of winning are so slim it's not worth worrying over.

Edit : I see some of the sale items changed though, some are cheaper like the CPU and some more expensive, not to mention the SSD I had originally chosen is now no longer available (Samsung 840 256GB), just great. Gotta chose a different one I guess. As for changing prices.. I had originally made this list so that it would be under $2k even without the sales, so I honestly don't care to change everything up at this point.
