Was thinking about it but I already have 2x 500GB WD im putting in this pc from my other pc, and I have a 1TB file server so I figured more money I can spend on other parts. And im not sure about the BD-RW yet. I might get one later but it would just sit there doing nothing atm.

Edit: Kinda like the other 4GB of memory.

Nice man! I'm waiting for the benchies to decide whether to get X38 + 3870X2 crossfire or get a 780i and stick with nvidia.
