Hi people!

I have a bit of extra cash left over from my psu and gpu upgrade and was thinking of getting a better optical drive my current drive is a stock dell cd/dvd RW

OPTICAL DRIVE: ? Dell Inc-PLDS DVD+-RW DH-16ABS

It does the job but I think it lets my whole setup down :( 

Is it worth going down the blu ray route, if so will it straight swap for my cd RW or will i have to change my setup?

Or am i better getting a decent cd/dvd rw ram?

Any recommendations? thanks in advance

Make sure you actually have a use for a BR drive in your PC. Right now, the only person I know that actually uses his, does so to backup his BR collection because he doesn't trust his kids to be careful with them.

i think your right Zenthar. dont really have a use for blu ray when i think about it! i have a ps3 to play blu ray! i'm just going to get a decent cd/dvd rw i've spotted a good LG cheap aswell. i've heard LG drives are good for reading certain disks for copying ;)
