    the A06 is a good drive, but what makes it so impressive for most people is the software that it comes with, which is a good bundle IMO.

    I HIGHLY recommend the drive... its fast enough (considering that it takes 15 minutes to burn a disc after waiting 2 hours for it to render) and comes with an EXCELLENT software package.

    i wouldnt have gottena 550w power supply but when i first started out ordering these parts i hadn't made up my mind yet as to which brand processor i was going to use AMD:p4 so i went with a bigger one just in case i went with the AMD---which i probably would have:)bowdown:AMD) but the p4 2.4c is more overclockable:)---but like they always say"bigger is better"
