Now, this has to do with cheap PCs as well,
I was wondering, if you have a IDE optical, and IDE hdd, do you need 2 IDE connectors, and if so, link to a board that supports that? I was thinking this board, but it only has one IDE and I thought I might need 2...

I think that you can just link the two devices in paralell. But you would need to set one to master and one to slave.

to save money you could use the same monitor and get ubuntu which is free (but kind of annoying to use) or vista home premium
