Personally I prefer the clean lower cost looks and performance of the Lite-On optical drives. Every system since my initial HP optical preference has been Lite-On's and all have been flawless.

Further to my earlier post I forgot to mention one very important point. I searched hard for an nVidia based motherboard. The Biostar motherboard that replaced the original AMD chipset based MSI motherboard is based on nVidia and has solved ALL usb related problems. Even the ATI integrated graphic sucked.

So my suggestion with experience of over 15 years with AMD cpus is to look for and go with nVidia chipset motherboard and you should be fine. Unfortunately Via no longer manufactures chipsets for AMD processors. They might take a bit of a hit on performance front but they simply out perform all the rest by a long way so far as stability and reliability are concerned.

So did Nvidia, hence why you can't find any. The last chipset they made for AMD CPU's was the 980z back in 2009, which was nothing more than an update to the 780a that added AM3 support. There also hasn't been an update for it in over a year and a half, and knowing how Nvidia supported previous chipsets not likely to see a Windows 8 driver for it any time soon.
