Hello guys,I am currently planning on building a new PC.This will be my 4h that ive custom built from scratch.I have some idea's as far as hardware goes and just wanted to post to get some thoughts on everything.Hey you guys may know some things i dont.Thanks in Advance.
Recently ive been doing alot of reading on overclocking and decided i want to begin my first overclocking project hence why im building this new PC.

Seems like a really great deal.I would like some imput from anyone that knows alkot6 about DVD-RW drives because as ive found out before great deals usually have a catch.DVD-RW/+RW drive-Sony Internal 16X DVD+/-RW / Double Layer Drive Black, Model DW-D22A-B2, OEM
