it is easy to oc a cdrw or cd-r device... just upgrade your firmware...
however you do shorten the estimated life of your atapi device.. if you think that 30x burn capability is too slow... well better to just upgrade to a new burner... 48x burners are out there for under 65 dollars (48x-16x-48x from msi for 63)
a good ddr motherboard would probably cost around 65dollars upwards...
better to get a VERY good motherboard so you have lots of upgradeability and features i.e. ram slots and pci slots as well as raid (if you need it) and other stuff you think might come in handy..
if you are into overclocking look @ the boards specs and if it is good for oc-ing..
if you see a board you like... go online and check out lots of reviews on it to see pro's and cons

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
