You don't need to worry about master / slave and all that with Sata drives. Also, you should be just fine power-wise to add another hard drive.

You shouldn't run into any problems. I've had more power consuming hardware on a 450 watt psu (to include an 7800GS AGP graphics card).

you should be able to handle a second hard drive just fine, unless youre overclocking through the roof.
the only issue is the brand of your PSU isnt exactly top of the line, still, you should have no problem.
