Default Best place to put hard drives?

In this Thermaltake Armor Case...

http://images10.newegg.com/NeweggIma...133-154-17.jpg

There are Internal and and External Drive bays. Where should I put the raptor hard drive and the 320GB Seagate Hard drive? in the place where it says internal or external?

The one next to the place where the PSU will go? or the on in the front?

I'd prefer my hard drives to be away from the PSU. As I heard that, you shouldn't keep hard drives, near the PSU. I think it, had something to do with magnets? I'm not 100% sure.

I prefer to put mine at the very bottom becuase as he said you want them farther away from things and also at the bottom the Video card doesn't have a chance to block the drive.
