It's $14 more but, I think it's a good motherboard:

You didn't mention ram...I suggest 2GB (2x1gb).

not but it helps having 2 burners so you don't waste a lot of hard drive space and will make renting from blockbuster easier lol(you know what im talking about)

one final question. i took the advice and am getting a motherboard similar to that. Question is: it takes 800MHz ram, does that mean i can install anything under 800 or just 800 ? because i have some PC5400 677MHz ram and i would rather just install that... is it possible?
here is the motherboard....http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=G452-2560
thanx for the help.....

Well here's the same motherboard on newegg for slightly cheaper, I avoid Tigerdirect, they suck.

About the ram, the 667MHz, should be fine.
