  1. I was wondering if anyone out there has purchased the pioneer ac9xlb black internal dvd+- drive with 6x dual layer? Is it worth the 129.99? Is it reliable?
    Also i was wondering if the amd athon 64 3200+ retailboxed processor with motherboard for 219.99 was a good deal?If, not what would you recommend?

    that for any help

    Unless you're in a very tigher budget for a long while, forget socket 754 AMD chips & mobos. s754 locks you in the dated architecture. s939 would be a better upgrade path. It costs more. The s939 mobo supports FX and s939 CPUs and dual-channel memory. You'd probably need a new PSU for AMD64.

    As for dvd burners, I hear some say Benq produces the best burns. I prefer LG - the only drive that does DVD-RAM disks. Maybe except the hard-to-find Toshiba and Panasonic.
