Default cd drive help needed!

i am planning on getting a cd drive for my new pc. i want the drive to write things fast onto cd-r,cd-rw,and dvd-r discs. i also want it to read cd-roms very fast. which one of these cd drives would be the best quality for the cheapest amount of money? ( i was thinking of keeping it below $40.)

ok, thanks

can you tell me if this is a good cd burner? (will it play good games like hl2 and doom3?) and can you tell me if it is compatable with the mobo below it?
