If your mobo has 2 SATA ports, you'll be able to put 4 devices on that. Do you have some drives already or are you buying all new?
1 hdd per SATA port not 2. 2 devices per PATA/IDE channel

to shannon, about the powersupply issue, you can buy a splitter for near-to-nothing, althouth too many splitters means alot of load on the PSU aswell..but usualy the PSU can take it [I have like 3 splitters in my computer.. my 450W Generic PSU didnt have enough plugs to satisfy me ]

Just a thought, incase thats any helpful to you [or even the post maker]

@Nitestick, thanks for correcting me, my memory was not at its peak when I wrote it, was not sure whether there was or was not a 320gb barrier.
