LoL, just spend time with your family! The HP drive might be a loud like mine, but how much is nero 7, anyways? (Btw it's the best burner) If you really don't care, get it. And for the i7, it's a lot better, and you're paying more for better parts. Plus, if you plan to crossfire 4870's in the future, it will be running at 16x/16x, not 16x/8x
PSHH Nero sucks..

ImgBurn is the best and its free

excllent build.
second imgburn as best burner.

i would go with an Asus p45, but i have all Asus, and they work flawlessly...so i am biased.
the p45 boards do 8x/8x in crossfire, not 16x/8x. which will only be a problem if you are running some insane (like higher than 1920 x 1200) resolutions. but, if it is a concern to you, the x38/x48 mobos run 16x/16x.

But they are more expensive, than a P45, so might as well get an i7!!

Third vote for imgburn. Also samsung burners are very good quality. They have a speedy, smooth mechanism and are quiet whatever they are doing.
