Hard drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 750GB
Optical drive - ASUS Black 20X SATA DVD Burner
Heatsink - Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme w/Cooler Master 120mm 2-fan pack (for push/pull method)

The X-RAM feature seems like a gimmick.

All of those additions that you suggested, would go over the budget.

lol...If you don't mind the noise, that would be a good fan. But in my opinion, Thermalright products do good with low cfm fans. It's not necessary for high cfm, because they're high quality heatsinks.
ok, maybe I will go with the coolermasters, but I was planning on using one of these "Ultra Kaze" on a rheostat for my rear exhaust. I may get those coolermasters for my side fans also... I dunno that I really care for the LED's though. Oh, I wanted to get a higher cfm fan in what ever slot blows on the NB.

Just cut off the wires leading to the bulb. That's what I did, when I had too many LED fans.
