Hye guys, im building a new PC and i need to get my hands on a DVD/ CD RW and a DVD RW drive.

Only problem is, i really don't know whats good when it comes to CD drives and DVD drives.

Anyone happen to have some suggestions on good drives?

Should work just fine. It needs a SATA cable though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16812123160

most drives are petty good

if your only buying in your area then find a shop and go on their website

even the cheapest dvd drive will be good(make sure you look up its model name and see if other people haven't had problems with it)

and remember that it don't matter if its sata/ide

since dvd drives cant go that fast and it will never go faster then ide66
