Hi everyone! Texcritter here and thanks for having me.
First, the setup:
AMD 2500+ Barton 1.77 GHz
Biostar M7NCD Pro mobo
2 x 512Mb PC3200 ram
ATI 9800 Pro
Maxtor 60G (Master)
WD 80G (Slave)
Lite-On 52X32X52 CD-RW (Master)
Generic DVD-ROM 16x (Slave)
Not installed yet:
NEC ND-3500A 16X Double Layer DVDÂ±RW Drive
Write Speed: 16X DVD+R, 4X DVD+RW, 4X DVD+R9, 16X DVD-R, 4X DVD-RW, 48X CD-R, 24X CD-RW
Read Speed: 48X CD-ROM, 16X DVD-ROM
Second, the question:
For Christmas I received the NEC 3500A (lucky me). I will mainly be burning (and ripping) 75% DVD’s to 25% CD’s. Obviously, I need to replace either the CD-RW or the DVD-ROM. I’m hoping you guys can give me your suggestions on which device should get the proverbial boot. Thanks in advance for your input.
