Hey guys I recently ordered an SSD and am waiting for it to get to me. Now I have a question as how my setup should actually look like.
I'll have 1 SSD and 1 500GB hard drive.
I'll be loading my OS onto the SSD along with most of my main programs(It's only 64gb big, I'll need Visual Basics and other IDE's)
For my storage drive of 500gb, would it be worth it getting another one and setting it up in raid0 if I were only to store media, games, and documents in it. I know I'll get an increase performance in the games but not that much right? I'm also scared if it were to fail so I was thinking of getting anohter 160 or 320 2.5 inch drive that I could have inside for my really important documents/projects just in case 1 of the drives in raid0 fail.
Or would it be better to set it up in raid1 with just 500gb?
I wouldn't raid 0 it. If you are going to get 1 more HD, get an external one & use it for backup. As long as you backup your important stuff frequently (maybe at least weekly, depending on how important it is).
