I am attempting to build a mini PC gaming system(purely for emulators)
Something that I can hook up to the TV without having to have a huge desktop computer sitting next to the tv.
Anyway, I have the motherboard all picked out, but now I am stuck as to what to add to it.
I need a slimline DVD drive I know
Can I just get any slimline DVD drive and attach it to the MB? I know I would need to install the drivers, but I am assuming the MB would recognize the new hardware and start that process...no? I have also learned that most IDE drives require an adapter to a Mini ITX board
Hard drive I pretty much have down, but also see that I may need an adapter for that too. Was thinking of going with maybe a 40gb.
I am not TOTALLY foreign when it comes to computers, but I never actually had to put one together. Thanks in advance and please stick with human terms when answering
