60$ Lite-ON 12x BDROM is the cheapest I seen (from brands I prefer). But play/rip only no burn. Does the job and I believe it's not riplocked. Havent tried it yet.

Should be fine with 550w. I think you should be fine with an i3 too for the emulators. Or at least i5-2400 if you prefer i5. Or go with i5-2380P since you prob wanna put the 560Ti to good use.

Im definitely interested in 1. Can you detach the ODD tray or is that a combo ODD tray and HDD tray?

EDIT: Nevermind. Just saw the pic with no ODD tray. Still interested in 1.
