Hello,

If you're getting a Combo DVD Burner with CD-Rewriter, then I would scrap the CD-R drive, or you could scrap the CD-RW drive instead of the CD-R drive, or both completely. Depends on what burning facilities you want. I would keep the fastest drive in.

If you're getting a DVD burner, not a combo, then keep your CD-RW drive in.

I'd say theres no real need for a DVD burner and CD burner since you already have a regular CD drive. Two drives are plenty.
