I am building a new machine with fairly high-end config (i7-2600k, 16GB RAM, Asus Z68 V Pro / GEN3 mobo etc.)
I have purchased a Samsung 830, 64GB SSD to use as a boot drive for Win7 64bit and some Applications, Adobe Creative Suite etc. I have another 1TB data drive. but recently heard a new idea of using the SSD as cache disk? with Intel Smart Response Technology! is it a good idea?? I am confused, please help.. thanks.
64GB will be fine after you install W7 64bit and optimize for SSD you will have used 20-25GB + apps leaves ~30GB on my Force3. SSDs rock for boot drives + the normal apps! leaving games/music/storage on a HDD
