I am attempting my first build and I would like to utilize two 60gb ssds (intel 330 series SATA III) and a 1tb HDD. My first ssd would be my boot drive with Win7 (Anything else that should be on there?) and second would be my apps (CS6 master collection, Muse, Firefox, games, etc.) and the hdd would be for all my files (mainly 16mp RAW photos, movies, shows, music, and a backup of the 1st sdd.)
Do I sound like a complete moron or am I on the right track? I really want to keep my OS and frequently used apps on ssd for speed but am not really sure how to format everything.
While the 60/64 gig SSD is listed as the Min size for OS SSD, i find it cutting it to close. I agree with rolli59 and look for a larger single SSD.
Also larger SSDs normally have a slightly higher performance than their smaller brother.
And Yes both my desktops have daul SSDs + a HDD.
My I5-2500k has a 128 gig Samsung 830 for OS + Programs and I have a 256 gig Samsung 830 for a work/temp drive. The HDD for backup and for large data files such as photos and movies.
