    Many people have asked me several times about the DVD burners . Well reason im getting two is in case i need to burn a dvd directly from the disc, i think i'll probably take out the dvd rom from my Old POS PC . I dont know why i got the floppy drive lol , well i guess i just want to make it a complete pc. BTW whats wrong with a psu ? Anyways i feel that the case is good enough, because of the price, compatibily, and design/features.

    Looks good, and keep the floppy drive! You'll need it when you go to set up that Sata drive....

    a good reason 2 get a DVD RW and a DVD ROM is that the roms are nearly free, and if you have to buy a new one cause the motor breaks down (in my experience this is the first part to go), you'd rather replace your DVD rom than the burner......

    (plus for those 24 bucks, its not a big deal)

    Get at least an Antec PSU. Or Thermaltake or Vantec. But noname Dura or Aspire will f up your sweet system. GL.

    no name psu doenst mean it will "f up" your system. i know plenty of people who use a no name psu and they have no problems with it....my mom comp that i built uses a no name psu and nothing is wrong with it. i just think that if he is going to build a system with all those components, he might want a good quality psu with enough power for it all.

    Why take a chance?

    The only thing wrong with a noname PSU is that the rail voltages will be more flexible. For example the 12v rail may vary anywhere from 11.4v up to 12.6v where if you go with a higher end, brand name psu, there will be less variation and the voltages will stay more regular.
