Default A few more questions with my new setup im about to get started working on

Ok this is what my final selection will be.

I think it is pretty consisitant and will be a nice gaming pc, I have a few questions that will soon get me started on the whole thing.

1. With the Ram and the Mobo I would like to know if they are compatible because I asked on a last thread about a different one and they said it is but I think they are compared by the timings which on the ram it is 5-5-5-12 and on the mobo it says it takes the 5-5-5 stuff, But you might want to double check me on that.

2. I need a dvd/cd drive and I still need to pick one out, any suggestions on a mid ranged one from newegg?

3. the case I picked looked pretty legit... But is the Psu pretty good? For the parts I picked I think it is.

4. Anything else I might need? I have all the extras like mouse and stuff.

I agree with the better power supply.

I believe that would be a great system.

I am going to suggest one very similar to yours to a buddy who wants to build a pc bad, after he came over and played Rainbow Six Vegas.

Enjoy your build,and if you have any trouble the great people here will help you out.
