G)-(osters: "only way you'll ever know is to install it."
Theoretically speaking, ok?

I can burn at 40x on my current CD writer (700MB @ ~3mins) - or do you mean something else?
Do I really need an upgrade for burning DVDs? I mean, it was already upgraded...a month ago I had 333 celeron and 198MB RAM (don't laugh) on the same system running win2k and my CD-writer has always been going strong.
