Solved Help Understanding use of SSD Tags: SSD Storage Last response: February 23, 2012 4:17 AM in Storage Share johnkerry February 16, 2012 5:48:37 AM I am building a PC where I will do a lot of graphic related work. I was thinking about getting an 64 GB SSD and a 1 TB mechanical drive. My question is, will I get the most out of the SSD by loading windows and all of the program files on my SDD and using the 1 TB drive as a slave? I will be getting a mobo with the Z68 chipset so there is the "Smart Response Technology" features. In that case would I do the opposite and load windows and program files on the mechanical drive?
