    You could save a little cash by fitting one dvdrw and one dvdrom.

    Alot of people would disagree, but I'm prejudice and would use an Nvidia graphics card.

    First of all go with a quality mb mfg; ecs is noted for building junk.
    Next you list "500W power supply" What brand? I hope it is not one of those that come in a case because most [however not all] are very low quality.

    IMO building with cheap parts is just asking for problems. This asus board would be a much better choice than an ecs board.

    i don't see burning 2 discs at the same time possible ... one type of burner in my blief is a lot easier for use
