Want to add another HDD to my PC, but I don't the space to fit it into the case.

80/80

Used to have a HDD rack to place extra HDDs in, but I had to get rid of it because my graphics card wouldn't fit in the case while it was in there. Any ideas?

Don't want it to be accidentally bumped while it's accessing data or something. Anyway, I found some of these on Newegg, so I think this may be the best thing to go with as I have a couple free drive bay slots.

Take out two of your old drives, buy two larger ones to make up for it, then make those two that you pulled out into external drives either with USB 3.0 or esata.

Can't do that because my case only has space for one HDD without the rack that I removed.

Not buying a new case until I am ready to build another new PC. Only one, and I want to add just one more.

Yes, I am currently considering something similar. Either one for an empty floppy drive bay, or a disk drive bay. Pretty much settling on this one. Cheap and seems versatile.
