  1. Im building my first computer, its for gaming so I thought this would be the right thread So I need to know if the parts are all compatable as IM pretty sure they are but Im no computer genius and I need to know if this will be able to run most if not all of the new games that will be comming out in 2006 espically The Elderscrolls 4 Oblivion which is the game thats making me build this Computer, cause I want to play it and I want the full experience as I can notice a SLIGHT lack of quality in the graphics on the x-box 360 version from the Screenshots, not to mention PC version opens up modding which is always fun :D

    Well Im gonna get a DVD Drive, No reason to get one thats RW though, It would never be used, But since games are still on CD Im getting the CD drive first, and Ill leave one of the expansion slots open for getting a DVD drive at a later date.

    If you also got any recommendations on better hardware thats around the same price be sure to post.

    like I said before though, Im gonna buy one, just im gonna get it later as Im mainly concerned with just running oblivion, and speaking of DVD drives what ever happened to the talk of developers moving to DVD, Im guessing its cause CD-Roms have faster read speeds

    Not to argue with DonNagual but a combo drive is usually a DVD ROM and CD writer combination. That said, consider getting this drive:

    It is a DVD ROM (not a writer) which you said you are getting later and it is a CD read/writer as well. Now you don't have to get two drives (if you don't want to, that is).
