    Welcome to RO.

    Yes you can and your operating system will determine how many you can support. With XP or 2K you can have 6 devices (2 SATA and 4 IDE) with 98 or ME only 4 devices are supported. The reason for this is because in order to add an SATA device to 98/ME you must disable an IDE channel. I'm assuming your using XP as you said it's a new PC so you should have no problems.

    I hope this answered your question and happy recording.
