Already have:

CPU

AMD x3 445 Rana

MOTHERBOARD

Biostar TA790GXB3

RAM

4GB DDR3

Will need:

CASE
POWER SUPPLY
OPTICAL DRIVE
HARD DRIVE

Basically, I will be selling this sytem to a friend that just wants to be able to rip DVD's as fast as possible. As I have no idea what controls the ripping of a DVD, I came to you guys. I came across an awesome deal for a 965BE setup, and I want to pass the savings down to my friend with my old parts. I'm guessing the PSU doesn't need to be that strong since its not for gaming.

There aren't a lot of benchmarks done any more on DVD burners.

I can't advise you on stripping the copy protection off of DVDs, although there is nothing wrong with that for personal use as long as it's DVDs you own.

Hardware though... well, that would depend on the software and if it was multi-threaded and how well, etc.

I can tell you that I have observed a nice boost in some of the newer optical drives, and seen some benchmarks to back that up.

I think the Antec EA-380D is on sale at newegg right now and a good quality unit. There are a couple other 380W PSUs that will work fine. See the PSU guide linked in my sig.

Is he going to want a really big HDD?
