Solved Looking for System with Room for lots of hard drives

Specs: Windows 7, 4gb
i am looking for a setup that will allow me to have 4-8 hard drives in them. i want say 3-4 hard drives for media or one that can hold more that 4 and have the option to mirror them for backup purposes. i was thinking this would be much nicer than a bunch of external usb hard drives wich all have their own power supply. I am not a gamer and use my desktop for file/media server to my stream media to my western digital boxes, picture and video editing.

what i am wondering is there something out there that people have used and would recommend such as an extra box with an external power supply that would allow me to do this and then run say one cable to my desktop cpu and have all the hard drives available.

from what i have seen getting something with this amount of bays and power supply would be expensive in a tower.

edit i have seen this on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Mediasonic-HF...

✔ Best Answer
External would be easier.

Another option is if your system is relatively modern and has enough SATA ports (or you are willing to add a SATA controller card), you can move your system into a full tower case (many have enough room):

Or build a new system for your needs.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Fixed Link. Not sure what happened but it worked when I tested it before.
