Re: Connecting multiple hard drives
One issue with hard drives is that you are limited to the number of SATA connections on the motherboard, unless you add a PCI SATA expansion card (which may not let the connected drives be seen by BIOS as bootable).
For Windows gaming, you need a native Windows installation on the hard drive of the fastest PC with the best video that you have.
Setting aside that case, if your objective is to have a reliable Linux system with multiple OS choices, then why not install either VMware Player or VirtualBox, and have as many VMs as you want? Here I have siduction (KDE 4.10) on the SSD, and 4 VMs: Kubuntu 12.10, Kubuntu 13.04, siduction RazorQT, and Windows 7. But I'm not a Windows gamer.
Another direction is to use USB flash drives, and use unetbootin to install a Linux Live ISO. Parted Magic, for example, is one that really comes in handy at times.
