I have an OptiPlex GX1 mini tower. When I look at the motherboard I
see three 40 pin sockets. Two at the end are labelled IDE and IDE2.
There is one more 40 pin socket in the middle but no label.
Is this another IDE socket to which I can connect a CD-RW drive?
What is this socket for?
Thanks.

NO. It's an "ATI Multimedia" port.

I have no clue. That's why I posted the URL.
So you could check the documents.
