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.

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.

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