Hello i am getting a new ssd drive today and i am not sure whats my best option to setup it in. I have a 1tb western digital black and then a 256gb samsung ssd. Most of my computer use is for playing video games but I also record HD game play at times also. Is ahci my best bet or what mode of raid should I use? Thank you.
You really don't need raid. Just put your OS and apps on the ssd and use the 1tb drive for your recordings. So, just enable ahci in the BIOS (before you install windows) and you should be good to go.
