Eh, you could still do better.

You could add another DVD drive (same as you have picked out), and get a better motherboard (Bad Axe 2, as long as you aren't going SLi): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813121059

You could also get a HSF instead of using the stock one. I heavily recommend the Tuniq Tower 120. Best on the market:

Also, don't get a PNY 8800GTX, it's more expensive than other 8800GTX models. Go for the eVGA one, plus it comes with a $30 mail-in rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130072
