Give us a Link to the Burners, and To the LCD.
Always room for improvment.
How many Fans does that case include and are you planning to buy more?

The case includes a front (80mm) and rear (120mm) fans, also has a side air duct. I'll see if more is needed after I get it setup and running for a while.

DVD-ROM:

Matrix Orbital LCD (This isn't a monitor, I already have a 17" FP for now):

I haven't ordered the LCD yet. I'm debating between the 610 and 630.

Im not sure if Newegg sells optorite But they are rebagded Plextors and Plextors own. So if you wanted to do some searching you could get a great Burner. Not that Im slamming NEC or Sony (Cause I have Both).
And as for the fan situation. Yea if it has more slots theres no reason not to fill them even if it is with low noise ones.
