Do you know if you're planning on watching Blu-Ray movies? If not then just take it out because you'll never use it.

Yeah I already took out the blu ray from the build.

I changed the CPU and motherboard as well to the ones suggested.

I still have a good mouse in good condition so no need to get a new one, any other suggestions.

Oh, and I'll look into a sea sonic PSU, I've heard good things about them anyway.

They're one of the best brands to go with. I think EVGA just rebrand theirs.

That actually makes me feel better about buying an EVGA PSU.

Yeah, but you end up paying a premium (most the time) for the new stickers.

Well it looks like I have some temporary cash flow issues (mainly I've spent more money than I intended to and I want to save a bit before doing this), so the computer will be put on hold, thanks for all your help, I'll probably attempt this again in a month or so.
