    Well there is definitely no harm buying a 16x even if you burner only supports up to 8X for example. For example sake, lets say that your burner is 8X, what it will do when burning a 16X is to burn at the highest possible burning speed of the drive, which is 8x mostly in this case. No harm is done with burning a 16X with a slower burner. I doubt there's a limit of no of dvd-r you need to stick to without damaging your burner.
