Is my PC able to accept this upgrade

  oo7juk 23:22 29 Jun 2005


Want to install a dvd writer, at the moment my PC has 4 ide devices connected to it.
cd writer, dvd rom, and 2 HD.

I have a ASUS a7nex mobo.

Many thanks

You need a pci ide expansion card, cheap enough at about £10 from your local pc store, make sure your psu is up to the job though.

Or you could swap it for the dvdrom.

Imo, the cd-writer would be best swopped.

" Imo, the cd-writer would be best swopped."

Even better.

Thanks guys, I think I will swap over with my cd writer then.
