i would removes that hideous cable, i hate them and it might seem snappier and the newer ones will be quieter, some come with software for burning

sata optical drive will not be any faster than an ide one (assuming its 20-24x dvd-rw)
for preformance it will not gain anything

cable management would be a plus, but if your using all your sata controllers, it would be nice to keep it on ide, til you get a bluray/dvd burner

Its only worth it for Blu-Ray. Other than that.. no. Im not even sure you can get an IDE bluray drive.

Ubutnu burns media very nicely for free. K9 copy is excellent!
I think all 5.25" burners are quite loud. PATA IDE and SATA. Well, maybe, just maybe SATA is a pinch more quiet.

And yes, 2 is better than one!
