Are you asking about upgrading the graphics display card or the DVD burner? If a burner, any ATAPI IDE burner will do, but if you can get a DL and if you see a Pioneer, grab it. New they run about $30.00.

Sites such as xlr8yourmac.com have how to install details, with photos.

Leave it be and put the money to a DVD burner. DVD burner do burn CDs, CD burner do not burn DVDs.

For a graphics card see if you can get a second hand ATI Radeon 9000 Mac Pro with 128MB memory.
