My System Specs

Default Do I need to build a Nas server or can I do this instead

I built a cheap HTPC, using an old case as some spare ram old HD. I am using Media portal which is working great . now I want to have more storage for all of my TVseries and movie files. do I really need to build a separate system so I can sometimes access these tv\movie files from other PCs in my place or can I just customize my HTPC to have access to the files?
this is my setup
Asus M2N68-AM SE2n Rev X.0x
CPU AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+
Cpu Socket Socket AM2 (940)
System Slots 3 PCI
Memory 4 gb ddr2 6400
Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Is it possible to just pick up Kingwin KF-4000-BK 4 Bay 3.5IN SATA Hard Drive Hot Swap Mobile Rack W/ Cooling Fans the put some drives into it plug it into my HTPC using a PERc 5/i (read from lowfat's post in here NAS Build )

or would it be better to build a whole NAS system ?
