Default Question on external cases

I just bought:
Western Digital Caviar SE WD2000JS 200GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

I am going to use it as an external drive and need a case

I was wondering if it is possible to buy a 5.25" external case, put the hard drive in it and then buy a dvd burner and put it in there too, or is that just stupid? I didn't know if the case really has any effect on the performance...anyways any recomendations on a case this size or on that is 3.5".

I've never seen an external drive enclosure for with 2 bays in it. Trust me, that doesn't mean they don't exist.

But you can get nice single enclosures for $20, get 2
