Dell generally does not ship the analog audio cable as Windows drivers
pull the audio data off using the IDE cable. While you're in there, I
recommend setting all IDE devices to either master or slave as
appropriate, especially if you have two drives (like a cd-burner and a
dvd drive), Dell ships everything in cable select. On the upside, Dell
cases, while proprietary in design, are generally screwless and easy to
open/close. I have not seen any warranty voiding stickers on them, but
call them to be sure.
