Would there be a problem with having 2 dvd drives? Will those DVD drives I have selected run and or burn any kind of cd/dvd? Or do I need to get 1 DVD Drive and 1 CD Drive?

Yeah that's been noticed and fixed haha.

A buddy of mine on Starcraft II gave me that CPU and later pointed out I'd need a different motherboard for it... then he fixed it by giving me a different 1 that does work haha.

Wow... I've just noticed this whole setup is costing me like $1,100+... like $300-$400 over what I was intending LMFAO... Well that'll be a little rough haha... Let's see if I can pull this off.

Total Costs So Far: $397.67 USD (Tax on mouse unknown)

How come I can no longer edit older posts?

Not quite half the price, but approximately 62% the cost of Razer's website.

For an under $1000 budget, I wouldn't suggest i7... I'd go with i5 or AMD

That's a different keyboard. That's the one without the blue backlit keys which is what I'm looking for. The 1 I have listed is the Black Widow Ultimate. The one you have listed is the Black Widow.

The first CPU I have listed is i5 and that's what my estimate was with... and I actually quoted my total a little low I think... I think my totals going to be around $1,300.

In the low 1000's, you'd probably see similar performance between all three systems...
How about this? I think it includes everything, $1200, and it's an i7 950 system (and SLI to boot). Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Pretty sweet. I'd just tack on an SSD.
