Sounds like a nice box you got there.
I have an older 'puter that I handed down to my daughter that has an Abit MB, it has been a very stable platform.
I built it back in late '99. An antique in computer time.

As far as a recommendation, get a DVD r/w. They keep getting faster and cheaper.

Enjoy your new toy!
