I know Ian, you say get a new motherboard and processor. Still deciding on that. But if I didn't upgrade my motherboard and processor the DVD-ROM part will still play but not at 16x, probably only 4x or 8x? I was wondering when LG's, Lite-On's and Samsung's upcoming 52x24x52x16x combo's will be I know those will be one of the one's I would probably get because I think those drives will be the max my P2 system could take and I couldn't get any faster combo drive than those. I hope I am not making you mad Ian about this. :) Thanks, Craig.
