I am getting near to completing my parts list for my new build pc and would like som advice on dvd/cd drives.
The ASUS P5Q PRO motherboard i have bought, only has one ide connector (but can power 2 ide devices ), , and 8 or 10 sata connectors.
Now i have to decide wether to use that ide conector for my pioneer, and lightscribe dvd drives, , or, , for my single ide harddrive with vista on it ? ?
As it cost roughly the same to buy a sata hard drive as it does to buy 2 new sata dvd drives, i was wondering what would be more effective for my new system.
What would be the best way forward. ? ?
What is the real difference between conventional ide dvd drives and the sata dvd drives ? ?
