I actually have this burner --

Excellent burner for the price, not too mention it also supports Dual Layer discs -- it is white by default, but also comes with a black faceplate if your case is not white.

The NEC 2510 is dual-layer capable also, and only costs $74: http://shop.store.yahoo.com/livewarehouse/necnd8xdvdud.html

a good combo is from ASUS or SONY, if you want to burn high quality files to the CD run the burn at slow speeds preferably 12X on nero, Asus has a technology that lets you burn at high speeds qithout sacrificing quality, to obtain a good video/audio you must not buy motherboards with built in video or video you would buy each part therefore much expensive. A good motherboard is from asus also www.asus.com, i would recommend the video card to be asus also because it has the best cooling system among graphics cards. its based on my experience i run computers without shutting down and the Asus system endures the time up to now its running here
