I realized I forgot to add a CD-ROM drive to this build. What would people suggest for a SATA CD-ROM, which I will only use to run CD's...no burning or anything like that.

I would actually suggest this power supply instead. It is a better PSU, and it is actually cheaper (as the 550vx has 10.25 shipping charges)

Yeah, but newegg is located in CA correct? Im from SoCal, so I figure if its $10 for me, it would be at least $10 for him.

A 450vx would actually be plenty of power for his system.
