I want to add a DVD writer to an Intel P III 1 GHz PC with 512 MB RAM (soon to be upgraded to 1 gig), 200 MB 7200 rpm ATA-100 HDD with 8MB buffer and windows xp pro sp2. After much thought, I settled on the LG 4163B. However, I was shocked to find that it needs at least an Intel P IV 2.4 GHz to run. However, browsing the forum, I have learnt that the ‘minimum’ specs for a drive are not really what is stated on the label. Do you think that the 4163B will run fine on my system? If so… yipeeeee … if not… which features will be fine and which will suffer …?
also, do you think i should wait for the 4165… or is the system going to be too slow for it!!!
Thanks a lot…
