i think you could have as many as you want, as long as you buy extra ide controllers, sata controllers which go in ur PCI slots.

you can have one extra ide hhd on the 1st cable / one extra ide on the cd-rom cable / and one external hhd using the usb ports, depending apon how many usb ports are available. and then think of how many partitions each drive will have.
