id like to use a 32gb ocz onyx as a windows 7 64 boot drive and a 150gb velociraptor for applications and games and then a 1tb caviar black 64mb cache for all my files (music, pictures, etc) in a simple non-raid configuration. might also move the windows page file to one of the disk drives and/or put a couple of my most used apps on the ssd or even my largest or most used files on the vr. seems like this would be the fastest available without paying a small fortune. (i only paid 55 for the onyx, 100 for the vr and 80 for the caviar [i love newegg lol]) seems simple enough, the problem is ive never heard of such a config. seems like everyone who uses a ssd as boot only drive is torn between 10000rpm and 7200rpm hdd as their primary when cost is a factor. would i be able to do such a thing? would windows read and incorporate all three drives appropriately? if so would i have to use raid, or anything else for that matter? any suggestions at all (in line with this price-point of course) would be greatly appreciated! including where i should store the page file and others. oh and i dont plan on using xp mode AND im WAY anal about keeping my drives clean and at top performance, if that helps. i just hate waiting for things to load lol.
ps. my mobo is a gigabyte 890fxa-ud5/usb3
sorry this is new stuff for me. please be patient!
/me bows down to drive gurus.
im sorry, i appreciate the response, but that sounds complicated. would it really be worth learning all that? is it necessary and/or would it be a very noticable performance boost? and how much space do i stand to forfiet in doing so? both on my disk and my brain : dizzy lol
i dont mean to be unappreciative, but that stuff was all jibberish to me lol
