If I install a Combo DVD/CD/Wtr into my computer do I still need to keep my existing CD-Rom Drive.?? Or is it more advantageous to just install a DVD/CD Rom in one Drive and CD Wtr in the slot below as a slave?? I can foresee no need for for me to write DVD's. Note---I am a NON-GEEK

Its handy to have a second drive in the computer as you can dedicate one drive for your game cds or music cds to be playing while doing something else with the other drive.

If you buy a combo DVD/CDWriter, you don't need to keep your existing CD-Rom drive, although you might want to if you ever copy CDs, so that you can copy from one to the other.

There's no difference between your first option and second option - one has DVD and CD writer in one unit and a seperate CD Rom, the other has DVD (and CD) Rom and a seperate Writer. They'll both do pretty much the same thing.

You won't be able to write DVDs with either option.
