Are you going to be doing a lot of DVD burning with that drive? If not, you could save $50 by getting a DVD player, CD burner.

get a better powersupply. The p/s that comes with those cheap case are REALLY cheap!!!! There true wattage is actually 100W less then what they state it is. So if you don't want a fried computer in 2 months, get an Antec/Enermax 350 or better

Alright this is the system I came up with. I just need a hard drive so anyone please post HardDRives. Also on New Egg, all the Hard Drives are OEM without the cables so I cant get those cause I dont have the cables. So can anyone post HDD that are retail or come with the cables and please dont make it anything over $65. Thanks

Also, are you guys sure that the PSU that comes with the case is bad, cause I am forking over an additional $44 on another PSU, and sadly I am tight on cash.

EDIT someone told me that the case power supply sucks
