Any last minute changes? And don't bother buying the keyboard i got. After 2 days the left side of the space bar makes a squeaking noise every time i tap it. (Using my old hp computer)

Looks decent...no comments really.

About the only thing - do you read or burn a fair amount of CDs/DVDs? I use my DVD writer only 2-3 times a year and I'm thinking of doing away with it in future builds, opting instead for an external USB CD/DVD drive which I'll only use as I'll need it. It makes the build neater and frees up a SATA port.

External drives cost more than internal, but around here they're starting to approach the $30 mark, which won't break the bank.

I do a fair amount of experimentation with Linux and I always put the OSes on a USB stick. Maybe it's because I'm cheap and don't want to waste a DVD. :-)

I put my windows 8 OS on a USB and all my drivers on a USB already. But Incase I get a new internet modem or the Network Driver I got is corrupt I'll need a disk to instll the driver, or for my modem, activate it thorough disk. And you're right.. They are getting cheaper.
