after looking at many reviews, I just decided to order what I linked. That hard drive looks VERY good for the price. Barracudas are fast, right?

im sure it will be faster than my 3 year old 160gb WD IDE HDD lol. Quick question, will something like this act as a cd drive, dvd drive, and dvd burner?
