Nice.

Is it the 4.7gig or the new 9.4gig DVD burner? Some of the newer 4.7's are firmware upgradeable.

Good luck with it.

Man, you got ripped. 

Should've asked a chinese man, or a computer dude to build you one.  Probably would've saved you a lotta $$$!

Still, nice system tho.  The XT800 is an amazing card!

Like myself.

Right now is actually one of the worst times to upgrade your computer aside from the video cards. What's to come? DDR2, PCI-X, and new Socket 939 and Socket 775! That means two things: 1) this new stuff is a huge leap in technology but will cost quite a pretty penny but 2) it means all this old technology will drop heavily in price.

Don't get me wrong, you didn't buy a bad computer, just not enough bang for the buck.

Does it even matter? DL disks are ~$10 a piece for the time being.

Also, KOTT: The X800 PCI-X version is definately not going to stay at $535. Expect it to drop into the mid-400's in a month or two.

Pricewatch has them as low as $3.00 per.

Well I'll be damned, DL DVD-R did drop in price!

Be wary of those companies that claim that they are selling a new "DL Drive" where in reality it is the exact same drive physically, but with a different firmware. Such is the case with the NEC 2500 and 2510.
