I am looking at building a new pc my first attempt.
i want to use the computer for my educational use, like word typing,
creating web pages, storing loas and loads pictures (really loads of them),
want to store them on dvd, i lalso use programming languages like, visual
basic, python etc to make programmes.
and after much trawling through the internet I have come up with the
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA M59SLI-S4 AM2
1st HD: 80GB SERIAL ATA II HARD DRIVE (store OS and applications)
2nd HD: 400GB SERIAL ATA II HARD DRIVE (store data)
2GB RAM (1GBx2)
LiteOn DH-18A1P-18C 18X DVDRW
Microsoft Windows XP
can the dvd rw read cd-rom and rewriteble discs?
I would apreciate any comments or advice on this spec.
