Old hobby builder has question about new fangled sata

I was used to building pcs for myself with IDE. Now I see everything is SATA. I take it a setup consisting of a HDD for the OS, a HDD for my data, and two optical drives, will all live comfortably on a mobo just like all my IDEs used to?
Having 2 sata hard drives would the system try to use them as an array? or can they be used independantly as i intend??
Cheers All

  1. They work just like IDE, just much faster speeds. You can them independently.
