I built a new PC and out of all the components I didn't really research the DVD drive. I just picked one that Newegg had a high amount of purchases for because it's just a DVD player. Right? Well it seems to run extremely slow when installing games. I reinstalled Fallout 3 and it seemed to take 10mins or so to install. Does anyone have experience with this drive?

Well, 10 minutes doesn't really seem that bad. The game is what, 4GB? That's still about 4x speeds. Not the 16x you could be getting but it also depends on the DVD itself I think. Plus it also depends on if the game is compressed or something and needs to decompress on the hard drive. Gears of War took like 20 minutes to install because of this.
