Default Running Multiple Power Supplies

What is the best and most inexpensive way of doing this? I have 6 120GB harddrives and some other optical Devices and when I used my multimeter to test the current I got horrible Spkies and dips in power.

I am currently running a 350w Antec Power Supply.


Intel Pentium IV 2.7GHZ with Hyper Thread, 4 Western Digital 120GB HDD, 1 Maxtor 60GB HDD, VisonTek GeForce 4MX 440, SBLive! Value, TDK 440N DVDRW, Memorex 52X CDRW, Lian Li Aluminum Case, Too Many Fanes, and Not enough POWER!!!

Might want to look at redundant power supplies. They work well when it comes to spikes and drops in power.
