that's a BIG question, with multiple answers.
try this PC builder
see if that helps.
if you need more specific questions, plz feel free to ask.
as for using both SATA and PATA (ide) hard drives, i believe you can use both, however they run off two completely different ribbon cables..
for the IDE drive you have to use the standard wider ribbon cables, where the newer SATA uses a much thinner cable...so you can't use both on the same cable, but you could probably use both on seperate cables..i don't see why not.
that's a good question, i haven't really tried that yet, when i find a more concrete answer, i'll post again.
anyone else who knows that answer plz chime in.
