Yes, I got it from a gaming site, good isn't it?, I'll amend the name, thanks for pointing that out, I have a PS2, & I like adventure, RPG & 1st person shoot 'em up games, I'm known in local games shops as "the silver gamer!" I 'spose I qualify at age 74, I don't do computer games, they're awkward to play I find, much easier to load a disc in a console, press "start", & start playing right away, how about you, which do you prefer, I'm guessing computer, but millions of games consoles are sold in the States, each time a new one comes out, we see the queues lining up, waving dollar bills

All the best, Maurice

i like console games better because theyre usually better but in computer games im compelled to cheat and i get bored easily. i almost never get bored of console games, at least not the first time i play them. i just rented burnout revenge and i absolutely adore it. but before that i was playing devil may cry 3, and i would have finished a long time ago had it not been so hard. and yes i like all those genres, plus pretty much anything else thats fun. the only problem is i cant afford games because my dad wont let me get a job because im in school... i cant wait till the ps3 though. really want to play kilzone ps3.

You can pick awesome DVD burners at very good prices nowadays, I mean tghe one in my signature (NEC 3540A) is an excellent example. I mean here is the OEM version on Newegg:

And here is the full retail version:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152052

Just $5 more, and for the price they do an excellent job I can't complain about mine!!

But if you want to go all out for one, look towards the Plextor range as they are expensive but I hear they are good. In my opinion, they aren't worth the extra money as it's not a HUGE jump in performance, but here's a link to one of them for your information:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827131352

I mean for the extra $100 you're not going to be writing DVDs at any noticeable speed over the NEC, and I recommend the NEC as I have first hand experience with it, but any dual layer is very good for the price now. Just stick to known brands and you should be fine

Hope this helps!
