It would be senseless to get the fastest DVD burner there is (SATA2.0). And then get a slower DVD drive to read from..... It would ruin the faster DVD drive in a burning situation.

Looks good but how about a 1900XT(X) for the video card and an AMD X2 CPU?
In the dual core battle between Intel and AMD, AMD blows away Intel in almost every aspect.

Buyer is a computer noob... Wants Intel, anyways, I am also more familiar with Intel. I do not want to go off and expierement with AMD on someone elses money, ya know...

As for the GFX... I am confident that the 7800GTX is better.

Conclusion
Finally, for a change, it is rather easy to judge this card. The Radeon X1900XTX is a good step forward in ATI's development and it does kick Geforce 7800 GTX 512 in the performance nutz. It won't kill it stone dead but it scores faster in almost every single game or scenario. It is specially faster in very important FSAA 4X and 8X Aniso as these are the settings that someone who buys such games should be playing at. It is a simple choice: if you are not an Nvidia fanatic and you prefer to have the fastest card around the Radeon X1900XTX should be your choice. If you are the proud owner of Geforce 7800 GTX 512 card you are fine you still have a very good card, a good competitor to ATI's X1900XTX but not a faster one. The Radeon X1800XTX is behind those two but it can still give you a nice performance.

Never! I love Nvidia! heh, I will consider it... What is the pricetag on a X1900XTX?
