Hello! I'd just ordered most of the parts i need for building my own tower, and the ones i need left are the DVD writer and Sound Card.

Anyone know what's a good/best recommending DVD Writer or a Sound Card for high end gaming? Money is no issue, thanks!

For a top gaming soundcard (if you don't mind the price) you could opt for a Creative Labs SB X-FI Titanium Fatal1ty Pro PCIe

If you have a 7.1 or 5.1 AV setup in the same room as your computer - i would definately connect your new computer via the digital output on the motherboard (assuming you have one) and dispense with the use of a sound card because you will get far better sound from a proper AV hi-fi than any computer speakers.

With regards to DVD writers - if you think you need the facility to burn Blu-ray discs then go for something like this LG Blu-ray rewriter

Personally i consider a Blu-ray burner to be a luxury and will be sticking with my Pioneer DVD-RW drive until the price of BR burners comes down.

If you intend to get into serious gaming - then i sudgest you have a spare dvd drive in your computer as a back-up incase your dvd writer faults. (cd/dvd drives have a habit of failing when the shops aren't open)

Hope this helps
