Default My first mod, and some questions.

I disassembled my old computer and put it's CDR drive in this one and it didn't break...

And I have some questions:

Could I add the old one's harddrive to the new one? (do I just put it on the slave wire?) (Oh, and one's IDE and the other is probably ATA)

Could I have two graphics cards(would be a GeForce FX 5200 and TNT2) and make them work better?

Two CPUs(3 ghz HT P4 and 600mhz P4)?

1: Yes you can add the hard drives, assuming their both ATA / IDE

2: No, you can not make the graphics cards work together. The TNT2 is also AGP 2x and the FX-5200 is 4 / 8x so they wont even fit in eachother's slots.

3: No you cannot simply run mutliprocessors like that.

3. There is no such thing as a 600mhz P4. And no, you can't run multi-proc just like that.
