Just downloaded the latest "prebeta" of EAC due to some advise from this board..

It has detected that my CD drive has "acurate stream" but does not have audio cache and c2 error information..

Will this affect the quality of the rips? Would a drive with all 3 features produce better results?

Hardly. Some drives have better audio extraction capabilities (including error correction) others worse. This doesn't correlate with those features (Exception: Accurate Stream IIRC, which should be available). But it will affect extraction speed speed.
[EDIT]
If you use correct settings, and EAC reports "no errors occured", you'll have a perfect rip with 99.9xxx % security. These "xxx" might depend on the drive's abilities.

No.

One important thing: EAC doesn't detect reliably if a drive uses cache or not. So to be on the safe side you could either check "Drive caches audio data" or use Test & Copy and make sure that T & C CRCs match.

You'll find all information you could need about this here in the FAQ or using the search function and on EAC forum on http://www.digital-inn.de.
