All SATA boards will still have IDE sockets as CD/DVD drives are still using the IDE interface. This is the same interface as the UDMA HD that you're using or going to use.

well, i use the Antec NeoPower 480W myself and it's a really good psu. however, it lacks a 2nd fan to extract the heat from the top end of the casing which is a bit of a disappointment because it means that i have to use the rear case fan to keep the case cool (especially when constantly playing games or video encoding for a long period of time). this obviously means more noise from the system overall - so it would be advisable to get a psu with 2 fans rather than just 1.

Why on earth do they require a removable rack drive? I'd double check with them that they don't mean that you need an external hdd (USB or Firewire).

that's what i thought at first. but most of the people i know were required to use CDRWs or Zip disks.

Question: How many college or uni students could actually install a removeable rack themselves?

Maybe they want to make $ for the IT/helpdesk dept.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
