I would like to upgrade my mobo and cpu.
Can i use my 2 x ide hard drives with 1 ide to sata convertor and my 2 x ide dvd drives with with another convertor.
Can I link them as slave and master as at present.
I presume I will have to change my AGP graphics card to PCI e.

Depends on what mobo it is, but generally speaking yea, you can use the old drives still, I would expect your new mobo to have both IDE and SATA capability. Graphics, it again depends on the mobo, it could still have AGP as well as PCIe.
