Default HDD master, DVD-ROM slave?

Could I do this? Some people have said I'll get really crappy performance out of both.

You would get lower peformance copying from DVD-ROM to HD, that's all

I prefer to have both hard drives on seperate channels.

right now I have it set up so that the HD is by itself, and my DVD burner and CD burner are on the other port.

I was gonna add in a DVD-ROM so the only available spot was on the same cable as the HD.

So it would lower performance copying things from the DVD rom?

why the hell do you need 3 optical drives?
If you have a DVD burner it will burn CD's too.. just dump the CD burner - sell it or something..

that, and / or replace it with DVD rom for faster disc copying, don't put a optical drive on the same cable as an HDD, it can also slow your HDD's performance. If anything put another HD on your HD's cable.
