I'll be doing my first real system build soon, and I'm totally confused about which optical drives to get. Can someone recommend a good DVD/CD drive under $40 if possible? I plan on using the system for gaming.

System Specs:
Antec P182
Intel Q6600 kentsfield
Windows Vista Home Premium
2Gb G.Skill 800Mhz DDR2
eVGA 8800GTS 320Mb
Gigabyte P35 DS3R MotherBoard

I have that Samsung and it's really pretty quiet. Lite-On also makes good drives but at least mine aren't as quiet as the Samsung

I have the LG GSAH22N. It's a pretty good drive...

Go for Samsung for the moment. 203b and 183L are good options.

Make sure that its a sata DVD drive, those ribbin cables are bad for air flow in your PC case. In a year you won't see IDE cables anymore.
