Default What do you use your bays for?

Assuming the average is 4, what do you use your bays for on your PC? I (will) use 1 for the DVD writer, and I can't really think of anything to use the others for.

I was thinking, since a DVD writer or CD writer will only last so many hours (of writing time) about putting in a DVD ROM or a CD ROM (or combo). Looking for something here, lol...
