MOd EDit: Moved from Intros to Internal Hardware

Hello all,
Found some helpful info here so I decided to join.
Why would Dell give this info if it doesnt matter where to connect ?

General Installation Guidelines
Connect hard drives to the connectors labeled "SATA0" and "SATA1", starting with SATA0. Connect CD/DVD drives to the connectors labeled "SATA4" and "SATA5", starting with SATA4.
Serial ATA hard drives and CD/DVD drives are connected to connectors labeled "SATA0" to "SATA5" on the system board.

I am running ubuntu 11.10 on my original drive ( messed with it too much lol )
Going to instal a new identical HD along side it with Win 7 Pro 64 bit oem
Just bought at newegg for 120 bucks.

The Idea is to go to bios and choose which system I want to run.
I enjoy playing COD UO and Hope to play MW3 someday, not sure if you have to join steam or not,
If I do then I wont play it.
