Do you want internal or external?
Are there any available SATA ports on the motherboard?

Not telling me much.
Are there other SATA ports available on the motherboard?

Additionally, what drive mount spaces are available?
only one sata port left but i didn't have a sata cable so since i had to solve quickly i plugged it in place of the dvd. unfortunately this is bad case and as it's made there is only one place for a second hd; i think that the 3rd i'll place it where the dvd is now; tnx 4 support ;)
