Visual Studio .Net Professional 2003 Vs. Individual packages (VB.Net,VC++.Net....)

I am about to purchase either Visual Studio .Net Pro 2003 or just buy the single items such as:

VC++ .NET Standard 2003
VC# .NET Standard 2003
Visual Basic .NET Standard 2003


Let's assume that I work with all languages.  I know that the Studio has built-in support for J# and FoxPro.  What other reasons would I or would I not need the full studio and just buy the single items above?  I am getting the single items at a very cheap price but if the Studio is more integrated or provides additional features, I want to know then if that is a better purchase because I can get that for a cheaper rate also.

Do the standalone versions come with the data access components that the full package comes with such as the Server Explorer?

that would be a big deal for me, as I do alot of Database administration and it makes it really nice to have most of the functionality right in VS.NET... also do the standalone versions allow you to install add-ins like the XMLSpy VS.NET addin... that would also be huge for me as I really like the convenience of being able to include third party editors right into the VS.NET environment.
