    I would recommend external for people that did not have anymore slots to add a DVD/CD burner.

    As I plan to purchase an external one after I buy a extra hard drive and RAM...

    if you dont have extra slots forexample if u have a cdrom and a cd writer, you take out the cd writer and put the dvd burner on that slot since the dvd burner can burn cds and dvds

    It would be a lot cheaper to get a new case with more 5.25in bays than to buy an external drive.

    @hey_suburbia - there&#39;s another thread asking exactly the same question if you care to search.

    I recommend going to www.dvdrhelp.com and look around there. I think the most useful place for you would be to go to the website i just mentioned and on the menu on the left hand side, look in DVDR and DVD Writers but i think the forum and web shopping would also help

    I would too. It depends on the budget you have to spend on a burner. The Sony DRU 510 is one of the middle-ranged burner (by price, not performance). Once again, the DVD Writer section of www.dvdrhelp.com enables you to choose which formats it can support.

    EDIT: I do sound like a walking advertisement for the website, don&#39;t I.

    I would recommend the Sony or the NEC that support both DVD+/-R/RW. Pioneer have released one like this for 145 EIDE recently.
