I put a DVD burner in there, as they have pretty much become a standard part of any build (they have become quite inexpensive).

I know you didn't want a huge HDD, but the 160GB is only a few more dollars than the 80GB

My suggestion is go with what Gage has, but get a 7600GT instead and a 250GB HDD.

You could even just get 1GB RAM and use that saved money for a better PSU.
