Well i was thinking on buying a Cooler Master HAF 932 from Newegg but im not sure if it comes with an optical drive. Anyway it probably doesnt, so i might have to buy a new one. What i wanted to know if any optical drive fits on the cases slot, or if i need a particular one to fiit. If someone could recommend me some brands and models, id appreciate it a lot. If there are any good ones that cost less than 40 or 50, that'll be great. Thanks.

In my opinion, the best brand is PLEXTOR. Its units are more expensive than the rest, but they present a very high quality in all its products.

The dimensions are standard (W/H) 5.75 x 1.83 inch. The depth is the only aspect than can change, but it's no important for you. You have a hugh case.

I actually need an optical drive that reads cds and dvds, the regular ones that come with every pc. I dont know if im gonna need one with blu-ray, i really dont watch that much movies, its mostly for playing games or listening for music.

No reason to spend alot on a DVD burner -- Here is a Liteon model that will read\write just about any DVD or CD (including Dual Layer DVDs and also has Lightscribe support for only $20 including shipping from Newegg

The difference is that the ones can only read disks where the others can read and also write to blank disks -- most people nowadays will get the burners because the cost is the same and the burners can do all of the things a reader does and also write disks when needed.
