Re: DVD burner = CD/DVD reader/burner?
Agreed..sata II is very fast, especially the 32mb cache driver, or the perpendicular 16mb wd's.
In terms of optical drives, the difference isnt as big but its still there.
And with pata you are limited to 4 devices....sata allows for many more, and most modern mobo's come with at least 4-6 sata connectors or more....and only one pata channel for two devices.
