Default Dedicated HD psu

Ok I have a antec basiq 500 w harddrives laying around. Specs are: max of 36a over two rails to +12. If you need more I can provide. Will this psu be able to power 10 to 15 harddrives and nothing else?

You should be able to do it, as hard a 750GB WD Caviar Blue hard drive takes about .5amps from the 12V and about .65 amps from the 5V.
