... well I got my friend that for his build, and we managed to shove a dvd drive in the top slot. If it's a DVD burner you have then there's no need for another optical drive...

Look at the specs on the Plextor 740a. It is much shorter than most DVD drives and the best on the market. It is a little pricy though.

Seems like a waste of money given that it is not a writeable drive.
CD/dvd rom only.
