    I am reusing my current DVD drive. My brother has a CDR drive, so no need for me to have one. $100 on a CDR could be put towards something else like a gfx card.

    Undecided on the case. Was gonna get the Shuttle system, but too pricey.

    I might stick w/ my beige box for now until I find a case I like.

    They've got some decent cases at Newegg, since you're there already. Also, check out colorcases.com, they've got some interesting stuff too.

    Don't get a 2600, or gigabyte or GEIL.

    Get 2500, Abit NF-7S and Buffalo ram, make sure it's 3200pc winbond chip.

    I have that case, and love it. Everything is quick release, but no mobo tray. I'd love to have a mobo tray, but wouldn't pick another case over it.
