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 Plextor 716A. However, I was disappointed to find that it needs at least an Intel P IV 1.4 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 716A will run fine on my system? If so....... yipeeeee ...... if not....... which features will be fine and which will suffer ........?
Thanks a lot,
