    LG optical drive == fail and aids
    antec 900 case == rice and aids
    logitech keyboard == fail and aids
    mx2 == waste of money
    ACF7 == waste of money
    Gigabyte X38 == meh


    I could definitely spend your money better

    Okay disregarding the optical drives and Logitech keyboard which are minor items, what would you recommend over the Gigabyte X38?

    I would recommend an Intel P35 or even a Q35.

    if you insist on the x38 chipset, then get the intel version. If you have some irrational fear of legendary reliability and refuse to get intel, then just get the abit version.

    If I were you I'd stick with DDR2 and an 8800 GTS 512. Also I'd get an Antec p180 or 182 instead, but that's just me. One more thing, get a hard-drive with 32mb cache and one with 16mb for the storage hard-drive (I imagine you would prefer to have higher performance on your day-to-day drive rather than on your storage drive).

    edit2: Lite-on is probably a better choice for an optical drive and also, do you really need two of them?

    i'd wait for the P45 (1600FSB, ICH10, supports DDR2 & DDR3). i believe release date is in 2-3 weeks.
    Freezer 7 Pro already includes MX-2
    get 7200.11s
    LG = fail
