^ AFAIK there are no DVD burners which are SATA 3(SATA 6GB/s)...Also I doubt we would see any of those with it as they still cant take advantage of the existing SATA 2(SATA 3GB/s) speeds...

They actually don't exceed ATA 33MBps speeds. Even SATA is to much for it.

Now I'm kinda confused. Do I hook it up to sata 3gb/sec? Not sata 6gb... And there's also connections called 'sata raid'? Did I mention this is my first build

I don't believe it will make any difference which you hook it up to. Don't use the RAID port.

The DVD is so slow (compared to a HD), it doesn't matter where you put it.

If you have one available, put it in the same color (type) slot as your HD. The special "RAID" slots attach to a separate controller, and often don't work quite as well, but serve perfectly well for something like a DVD.

Don't use a 6GB slot - the extra speed capability is worthless to you and your DVD, and it may activate drivers that may add unnecessary overhead. Reserve those slots for if and when you get a device fast enough to need a 6GB connection.
