so this case ( http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... )has two HDD slots, but im pretty sure the other slots (like where the CD drives go) are also 3.5" bays, so its it possible to put a third or even forth hard drive in them?

Hit the "Specs" tab

External 5.25" Drive Bays: 4 (Optical drives i.e. DVD)
External 3.5" Drive Bays: 1 (Floppy)
Internal 3.5" Drive Bays: 5 (not 2 for hard drives)

See also link poage

"The E-Torque has 10 drive bays. Four tool-free 5.25" drive bays [opticals), one external 3.5" bay (floppy) and five internal 3.5" (HD) bays."

You can put hard drives in the CD or "external" drive bays. If they're 5.25" bays you can get adapter rails that let you mount a 3.5" drive in them. The biggest difference between an "external" drive bay and an "internal" one is that the "external" bays are located behind a punch-out panel that lets you mount something like a CD or tape drive so that it's front panel is accessible. If you're using the bay for a hard drive then just don't bother punching out the panel.

Try to keep a bit of distance between hard drives (ie, leave every other bay empty) to prevent too much heat build-up.
