Heh I didn't know if there were any improvements I could make, I think I'll actually opt for a 600+ Watt PSU just incase.

Well, since it looks like you have the money I would get separate DVD and CD Burners that way they last longer and go with plextor. I would also reccomend a Li Lian Full tower Case.

This is also a 7.1 Sound card, thats very good. Its cheaper then the one you posted.

Heres a better power supply, the OCZ are good but the one you posted doesn't have dual 12V rails and I would reccomend one that does for such a high end system. So here.
