Gaming

Hello,
What is the best way to install W7 X64 and games? Use a primary hard drive for OS and a secondary for games? Or just use the primary? No SSD drive for now.

  1. DEPENDS how much storage you need!
  2. I have another drive, 3TB sata III, for storage. I guess the question is, is it worth it to have a dedicated drive just for games?
  3. Then go with primary for os and games on the second , that is the way i setup my son's new rig!
  4. If you don't have an SSD, there's absolutely no reason to put the OS on a different disk. Are you looking for, I don't know, purity?

    +1 for purity
  6. There's no real requirement for it, but the data can be read concurrently if the data to be accessed at a given point in time is on separate drives. Everyone seems to have theories on separating duties for their disks. I use one SSD for the OS, the apps go on another, and all my saved game data/general data goes on another. All I can tell you is the performance is great.

    I have another machine dedicated to audio recording/editing/production by which Pro Tools recommends/requires a dedicated write drive for recording the raw data. You can actually notice the difference in record performance when using the separate record drive (less hicups in the recording).
