Alright I have 1 dvd drive and one hard drive and 1 fan hooked up to my 300 watt ps. That is all the plug outlets that it has. I want to add a new drive which would be a CD/RW drive so I can use my 100 pack of cdr's. I'm not sure if my power supply could handle another drive.... could it?

I dont see a problem with your psu handling that. I know a kid that has 2 or 3 cd drives and 6 hd's on a 300w psu.

with the processor and equiptment you are currently running you should have no trouble with the second drive. I have done what you are planning on doing before and it worked fine on a similar setup
