Yeah, after reading through the various threads here, I figured the AM3 was probably worth it. I was just about to go and get it, when I learned about the deal that Office Max is having on Verbatim 16x media. They have it for $12.99, so I decided to get the -Rs from them for $1 more than the Phillips. The Verbatim's have the media code of MCC03RG20, which I am happy with
Thanks for all the replies.
