I have an older system and wanted to get dvd rom as some of the newer games come on them now, but thought i would just get an all in one burner and rom, they dont exist?? i am confused, really dont want both

Also i am reading on a store site that the roms and/or burners have system requirements, i am not sure what system i have but its definately nowhere near pentium 4!

I am not in the market to upgrade computer for at least 6mths so should i just get a rom and worry about burner later if they have to be two seperate things?

A DVD burner will read DVD disks, you don't need two drives. You can install a DVD burner on a Pentium 1 system, it just may not perform to full capability. I wouldn't worry about the system requirements you're reading.

Of course, if you told us what your system specifications were, we could be of more help.

Download CPU-Z and run it. On the About tab, click the HTML Dump (.htm) button. This will generate a system summary HTML file that you can save. Compress that file into a ZIP file and attach it to a message here.

You shouldn't have any trouble using your drive with that system. It may not be able to do the fastest recording modes, but it'll certainly work. :)
