    I'm building a new PC on Monday:
    AMD Athlon64 3500+
    Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard
    Seagate 200gig SATA HD
    NEC Dual layer DVD burner
    Corsair XMS 1gig ram
    Now my question is, I'm getting another DVD-ROM drive. The motherboard has 2 IDE slots. Where do I plug the 2 optical drives and what do I set the jumpers on the drives to? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Doesn't matter which IDE slot I put it in right?
