    the stock cooler is fine if you wont be overclocking (or dabbing at it a *little*), but if you want to test how far you can take it you'll definately need aftermarket cooling.

    the stock cooler comes with thermal gunk pre-applied, iirc the Arctic cooler has gunk pre-applied as well, but it's always handy to keep some Acrtic Silver 5 laying around in case you need to reseat the cooler. It's silly cheap and last years anyway.

    well 1 IDE port will connect to 2 devices remember, but depending on how your case is laid out you may need to put the drive next to the burner so that the cable connects to both.

    Get a SATA burner? (since it's cheaper), although you can grab a 500Gb SATA HDD for next to nothing these days.

    You can do that, but it's generally a bad idea to have the HDD and burner on the same channel, IDE isn't very efficent.

    Generally none as such, as if its only being used for storage, you shouldn't really notice any performance difference, round cables are generally better (in the same way that sata cables are better) as they are thinner and so allow much better airflow in the case.

    If the IDE disk is just going to be used for storage then it'll be fine.

    or you could just get an ide to sata converter, also the round cables are the same thing as the flat ones
