Well... IDE or SCSI?

 

IDE you can have 2 per chain... most motherboards will allow 4. Some newer motherboards will allow 8 or 12... you can also buy ATI controler cards that will allow you to add 2 chains or 4 HDDs.

 

 

SCSI can have something like 12 per chain.

Yeah USB HDDs are cool but expensive...But you can just keep adding USB HDDs through USB hubs? If that is so, theoretically you can hook up an infinite number of hdds? That may get a bit hard on your comp though...

I think 127 USB devices is the limit :/

 

You would also need a very powerfull or a lot of USB hubs, because the power from the usb hub would be drained fairly quick with that many hdds :)
