I'm really excited to get it up and running. This'll be my first higher end PC, so I'm excited to acutally be able to play recent games and just overall do more with my computer. Anyway, just figured I'd share, thanks for looking.

Thats the same motherboard I bought. Thats going to be a powerful rig. Don't see the full purpose of needing 2 dvd drives though! Just a thought.
