You do not want a DVD player or burner, correct?
That's right, I figure I'll save some $$ by not having a DVD player plus I don't need one.
I wasn't really looking for brands of optical drives though, I was wondering what kind of drives I need to play games and burn cds. Like do I need CD+RW, CD+R, CD-R, CD-RW or what?? I don't know what any of those things are and I need help.
