Default Advice on DVD burner and WLAN...

I'm looking for a wireless pci card, and a dvd burner. Can somebody please suggest some good ones from ebuyer.com? I don't want to spend too much.

Thanks for any help given!

oh, how about this for LAN? http://www.ebuyer.com/product/45602/...roduct_reviews

edit. OH DAMN! I've been totally stupid, and ordered a psu without ordering the above components, that means I miss out on free delivery. So, I have paid an extra £9 for nothing on the psu. I'm thinking about ordering this...
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/105994. But I need to order a dvd burner and wireless card too. It probably wont come to £50 (to be entitled for free delivery) unless I spend a bit more on the cooler, or a bit more on the above components. So, yeah, if anybody knows a better cooler for about £5more please tell me!

Just spend the extra £5 on some little things, maybe an extra case fan, or some nice thermal paste because that cooler is very good and there are a lot of people on this forum who would back me up on that. I don't really own that network card so I can't comment, I'll leave that to other people who can help you.

DVD burners I recommend are NEC or PIONEER so look at these http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125209
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125209

I am currently using the Pioneer 110 and never had any problems with it and before that I used the NEC2500A and that was a good burner as well, as for LAN cards I used a cheep £10 from my local shop, Realtec I think, never had any issues with that either.

Ok! Cheers guys!

I'm gonna be honest here, and say that I'd quite like a black dvd burner to go with my case.

Should I get a SATA or IDE burner?

Which is better out of these two?

Thanks for any help!

Get the third Liteon, it'd go better with your case.
