Which Hard Drive for Which?

I have 1x (http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/94403)
and 2x (http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/78243)

I currently have 1 HHD for games 1 for OS & Gerneral Appz and 1 for vid editing +vids.

Which Hard Drive would be best for which, also is it best for games to go on seperate Hard Drive to the OS or on the same?

  1. im not sure of specifics of the drives themselves to be able to say which is faster really, but, going by the specs in the links you gave... i would say to keep the OS/applications/games/videos all on the 250GB hdd (with backups made elsewhere if possible, to dvds/cds/external hdds, etc)... and put the 2*160GB hdds in raid 0 for your video editing, and for hosting your OS pagefile and internet cache as well (use the largest stripe size available when setting up the raid 0 array)... raid 0 is not recommended for storing essential data, but for temporary storage such as editing, it makes perfect sense, and youll see a performance increase above a single hdd, by up to about ~15%, when it comes to dealing with large files like you are

    IMO this would be the ideal way to do things, if possible
