So my computer recently died and i figured i would try my hand at building one myself rather than just buy a Pre-Built. I came up with this http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/1U0Hs but i was hoping to get some input on it since i am not all that knowledgeable.

If you really want an optical drive, get one that's usb. Many people find that they would only need an optical drive to just install the OS. Also, don't know about pricing in Canada, but if you can find cheaper RAM, go for that, and maybe save up for a nice 120-128gb SSD as well.

This RAM is on sale, and equally good. Otherwise the build looks solid unless you need any of the items I asked about.
