[QUOTE=Torrak;2013941]Ok, I am new to computer building and trouble shooting and I am trying to build a computer and I am not sure about somethings here.
I am using an MSI K8N Diamond Plus MOBO
AMD 4800+X2 (939) Processor
2-gig Corsair XMS PC3200
2-7950-GTX2 nVidia Cards
1-RaptorX SATA Drive
1-Sony DRU-800A (IDE)
Galaxy 1000w PSU
ThermalTake XaxerIII Chassis
I do not really understand on the setting up of the SATA Hard drive and the IDE DVD/RW. I know that I need to put the SATA Drive on the #1SATA Controller for the nVidia nForce Chipset, I got that, but do I put the IDE DVD/RW on IDE-1 or IDE-2 (Or dose it matter) and do I set it as Master/Slave/Cable Select? I have never “Built” a computer from scratch ,but I am just learning and having fun with it, but I am a little confused. I spend every cent I had from Tax Return to build lol, was tired of my Dell :a
Thank you for all your time and response to this.
Don’t forget while building your computer remember to consult your motherboard manual as I always tell people that should be your first source of information as to what can be put onto your motherboard. But if I recall right if you have a single device on the IDE cable you don’t need to set the jumpers…
