Yeah with a computer like that you're pretty much garaunteed to be "Balls fast." Why 2 DVD drives? I can't see any reason for having more than one unless you're copying media from one DVD to another.

You might want to consider getting a Seagate brand HDD instead of that Samsung, Seagate is pretty much regarded as one of the highest quality HDD manufacturers out there: Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular recording) ST3500630A 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - OEM

Don't get 4 gigs of that RAM, you won't need that much, and Crucial Ballistix is better. Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Also you probably won't need a 700W PSU for that system. I'm not an expert on PSU's so I don't want to make any recommendations, but you might wanna hold off on that and see if someone else has an opinion about it.

Other than that, it looks good.
