Hello,

I currently have a 500GB Samsung Spinpoint HDD and was wondering if it's a good economical idea to buy two 60GB OCZ Agility 3.
I do not plan to run them in Raid 0.

SSD #1 I plan to use solely as a Boot drive + minor applications (Norton, MSN, Skype, Vent, etc etc)
SSD #2 Solely for steam games.
HDD #1 For my movies, music, etc.

Does this sound like a solid idea? or are there other factors I should consider????
Also, are there any special precautions I should take when installing windows on SSDs???

Thanks for reading.

Hi Coffeecoffee,

That looks like a fine plan. Another option would be to use Intel's Smart Response Technology (aka SRT) that is in their Z68 chipset. There are some stickies that you may find to be useful: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/270102-32-useful-arti...

Look under "Tweaks / Optimization" and you can see there are several guides. Hope this helps!
