More than 4 IDE devices on system?

#1
I wonder if you could help?

I've got 1 x 80GB (Main XP drive), 2 x 120GB drives and a CDRW and have no room left on the onboard IDE channels. It is possible to buy a seperate disk controller so that I can utilize another 2 x 120GB HDD's? I may need to upgrade my PSU from 450w to 500w or more though.

I'd buy a terabyte drive if I could afford it and have a system to support it

Yes you can buy an extra PCI IDE controller. They are cheap and normally support RAID as well. I don't think you need a bigger PSU.
