No3. I dont know the price of those motherboards but it might be worth having a look at the DFI SLI-DR motherboard.


No3. atm AMD dost not support DD2, so i would go for you second
option. also, 2x1GB chips will be better then 4x512MB

No8. What brand is that monitor?

No9. I have a DRU800A sony burner, great.. especially the nero bunle.. but i really dont see the point of 2 burners? maby 1 burner and 1 normal DVD driver.. but when will u be burning 2 DVDs at the same time?

No11. Im sure people will recommend a heatsink, or if u have money water cooling. But i am going to suggest the heatsink i have Gigabyte G-Power Pro, great heatsink with a fan you can bearly hear.

2.I wanted 1 drive so for example i put the dvd or cd in, then isert a blank cd or dvd in the other drive, and it will directly copy it.

3. What is the make, and model code for the heatsink??

thanks allot, and is all my other hardware stuff good??

You don't need two DVD burners for that. One DVD drive and one DVD burner.
