these are my hdd's..

western digital blue 320gb (master drive/partitioned)

100gb for C:(54.7 free) and 200 gb for D: (4gb free)

i dunno where the last 20gb is,haha..

seagate 160 gb (slave drive, only shows 149 gb, 13gb free)

my hdd's are almost full, because of games mostly.

my question is if i am going to buy a 3rd hdd, where can i put it?
i connected them to SATA 0 (master) and SATA 2(slave)..

i have a gigabyte 970a ds3p board...

With SATA drives, there is no more master/slave concept.

Assuming you have another SATA port on the motherboard, just use that.

And for the 'missing' drive space...its not missing.
A 160GB drive is actually 149GB
A 320GB drive is actually around 300GB.

GB vs GiB, and how it is counted.
