    Hi

    I will be purchasing a new DVD RW and another UPS shortly. My configuration is as follows :

    Intel 915 GAV Motherboard
    Intel 3.0 GHz CPU HT
    Samsung MagicBright 17" Monitor
    Samsung 160 GB HDD SATA1 7200rpm
    Lite-On DVD Rom 16X
    LG CD RW 52X
    Hynix Zion 512MB DDR 400MHz
    Canon xnu i255 Printer
    Creative Inspire 5.1 5200
    Creative Live 7.1 24-bit Sound Card
    Pinnacle PCTv Pro TV Tuner
    BPE 600VA UPS



    The 600VA UPS can't give me enough backup, so I wanna go for a new UPS

    It will supply power to -->

    1) 17" Monitor
    2) 5.1 Speakers
    3) Canon Inkjet Printer
    4) ADSL Modem
    5) CPU

    So the question is what UPS I should go for

    A) APC BACKups 650 VA
    B) Numeric 800VA

    Tell me which one (or any others if u suggest)



    2nd thing is that my Power supply is a mere 300Watt Frontech one
    Do I need to change it prior to installing a DVD RW ?

    If Yes do tell me what sort of a power supply should I go for ?

    I m using APC backups 650 Va and it is working fine.

    About ur power supply-it will work but I think u shld change. If u r changing than go for Antec 400-450 watts power supply.

    For DVD writer

    benQ 1650 is suggested by everyone. I also wanted to buy that buy my bro's frnd got benQ 1650 after reading so many reviews and now all of them r suffering. They r saying its not that good. Anyways u can go for Liteon SuperAll Write-model i forgot(165H... forgot).

    I beleive I will upgrade the power supply now , if it's necessary or else later when I purchase a graphics card

    About DVD RW my choices are between SONY and Lite-On . My Lite-on DVD Rom has till now performed excellent, but it was unable to read a dual layer DVD+R which a friends SONY DVD Rom read prompmtly. So keeping in mind thse issues I wanna go for a SONY DRU or Lite-On Super All Write


    Will a APC 650 VA give enough backup for a 17" Monitor P4 III GHz. ????
