Default DVD burner and CPU speed


I have decided on what DVD burner I want to order

The MSI DVD recorder DR4-A IDE Retail DVD+R/+RW and DVD-R/-RW.

Only thing is that it mentions it needs a min sys requirement of
IBM® PC compatible Pentium® 1GHz or faster

I have a 1GHz AMD Athlon

will this be okay?

look forward to your input. Would like to order it tonite

company info on the drive:

Bullit you will have no problems. DVD burner rely on hard disk speed/latency more than processor. even a 300Mhz processor can handle a burner. plus they have buffer underun, i think they are using mount ranier or powerburn technology on all of them now.
