Solved SSD and NAS only for new build? Tags: NAS / RAID Systems Build Gaming SSD Last response: June 10, 2014 4:15 PM in Systems Share Spiderm0n June 10, 2014 4:02:52 PM I am about to put this build together, and had a question. Do I even need a second internal HDD, or can I just run off my 120gb SSD boot drive and my NAS drive for everything else? I am going to set up a Synology DiskStation DS214se with dual 3TB drives. My primary usage for the computer will be gaming and video editing. Thanks!

An internal drive like you've specified (Seagate 2TB) will work much better.
