IDe Controller

I'm going to have more than 4 ide components in my system that I am building. What controller can you recommend? I will have:

Two or three ide hard drives (7200rpm 8K)
One cd/dvd ROM drive
One TDK burner
One 100mb internal Zip drive

Also, how would you connect them to eliminate any access/speed problems?

  1. Any ide controller should work fine. I know maxtor makes an ata133 but you dont really need the 133 speed.
    i would put the least used drives on the controller card like the 100mb zip and the cd/dvd rom if you have 3 hard drives. Or put the 3rd hard drive if you mainly use it for backup
