My three brain cells are not keep up with all these acronyms.

The reason I asked is when I Google ODD I get pages of
Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and I wasn't quite sure why anybody would order one of them. I have a CD, DVD, and BlueRay players and yes I know they are optical, I just didn't know their was a acronym that covered them all.
Thank you for the information. I will just go away and watch.

This is $20.00 more and will have a better return policy if something should happen
I will state skimping out on the PSU is a big mistake I do in fact have the Big brother for that PSU cooler master 700w extreme but for overclocking I wouldn't trust it to much because there is a certain level of quality that comes from a certified PSU CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com
