Samsung 204B 20.1" WideScreen 5Ms

I suggest a Plextor or Optorite DVD/CD Drive.

And if you Plan On Overclocking then get a DFI Board.

Also, How many fans are you going buy/ are included with that case.
Cooling is always an issue with high Privced gamming Machines.

That lcd looks nice but is there anything in widescreen?
Im kinda scared to overclock on this rig because 1) ive never done it before 2) it would be a very expensive mistake if i fried something.

here is the link to my case: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811133154
its got 2 120mm fans and 2 90mm fans

because the FX-62 costs a lot of money...and the new line of intel CPU's beat it very easily and they cost a fraction of the price.
