    i mean streaming videos to sites like justin tv. i dont play videos on the DVD for that purpose. i get them transfored to the computer using a USB. so do i still need to upgrade the DVD drive?
  3. forgot to mention the RAM:

    2GB DDR2-800
    PC2-6400
    (Single Module)

  5. It'd probably be cheaper if you just ordered a system off Newegg and built it yourself, and it'd be a better system on top of that.
