Please do not tell me you will use that "came with Case Power supply"

You want a good power supply to be responsible for these parts right?

Scroll down to features and you will see that it is in fact "100%" plastic. Not saying that's a problem, just giving you a heads up.

I believe that means the plastic material is 100% plastic, not other materials mixed with it. You can clearly see by the pictures that it's steel.

Case Material Steel/Plastic

the sides are plastic and the cage is steel. OK

A very nice build for a really good price, although i wouldnt spend 1500 on a computer seeing as i cant spend too much time on it anymore because of school, but thats besides the point..Point is is that you made a good choice in getting a PCI-E videocard, 2 gigs ram, VERY nice AMD processor, BUT i wouldn't trust OEM products that much. Anyway, Happy Gaming!

Not that I am a CD/DVD expert, but I have read that BenQ's aren't all that, nor do they even give you a bag of chips.

Personally, I'd go with a LiteOn DVD/CD combo, with NEC being my second choice. I know a lot of floks swear by Sony DVD drives, but in case you didn't know it already, they are just rebadged LiteOns.
