What fits my system

I am planing to buy a CD Writer for an old computer. It is a P200, 64mb ram at 66MHz FSB.
I know plextor make very good CD Writers but do not know which to get.
Would the new 16/10/40 be faster than the rest of my pc could keep up with? ie could I tranfer data fast enough to burn at the 16x?
If not then which would fit nicely to the rest of the specs.

I've got a Pentium 200 MMX (the MMX should have no influence in burning) with 64 mb of RAM, and the Plextor 12/10/32A works perfect.

As long as you enable DMA mode for your HD, CD and CDRW (as I always do), I think your system would be more than enough even for the new Plextor.

If you get a Plextor with burn-proof technology, it won't matter how fast or slow your system is, you'll still be able to burn good CDs.

Your computer has very minimal requirements, so I would recommend one of the drive with Burnproof. That way, your chance of making a coaster are next to ZIP! ;)
Plextor drives are good.

Ok, thankyou all. Your cries ring in unison. I shall review my funds and pick a Plextor drive with burn proof accordingly.

Thanks

I had problems burning MP3 to audio at 8 speed with my old celeron 300 but that was mostly due to decompression but data was fine
