Are you building this system for gaming? If you are, i would recommend installing a better video card.

the rest of the stuff looks pretty good.

If u want to take the DVD combo drive, u dont need to get another CDROM.
Or u can get a DVDROM n a CDRW separately, the price almost same like your combo drive.
Or get a DVDROM n a DVDRW, but this will cost u a bit more.
1 more thing, for my opinion, SONY is not very good. I recommend u to take Lite-on or TDK.

Sony's not a premanent selection. I was actually thinkin about buyin Lite-on. Now that u've said it, i'll get it. I will b usin this rig 4 gaming but not that hardcore. Just games like NFS, HL, Star Wars and some other stuff. I was also thinkin of gettin FX 5600 tough. Thanx anyways.

If u want a mid-range graphic card, u can try ATI Radeon9600XT.


Below are the benchmarks tested for your info.
