    Hi i do a lot of CD Duplacation work for djs i dont have a decicated Duplacation box, so i am thinking of, adding 4 DVD RWs to my pc Via a Mini PCI-E Sata Card.. But i am unsure about if and how it would work...

    Questions..

    1. Do i have enough , bandwith on my pci-e bus?

    2. i have seen a lot of cards with have ten plus sata connections, are they just for HDDs?

    3. Software, i herd nero can do mutipul burns... how many is max? OR what software would i need?

    EDIT: MY MOBO: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3505#ov

    On to my next topic SSDs.

    Thinking of getting a few, i know they would be worth it but, how many can my pc handle, were looking at getting about 5 x 120GB OCZ drives.

    is worth it?

    what cpu & how much ram. ssd is good for boot drive but not good idea for data drives so go with sata hard drives. don't think those cards are just for hard drives as mothernoard might not see the drives just windows.
