I currently have,

(1) WD 1tb HDD
(1) Seagate 1.5tb HDD
(1) OCZ 125gb SSD
(1) Samsung 125gb SSD

I was wondering what the best RAID configuration I could use to maximize performance, im not too considered about data loss as I have an external HD I can back files up with. Can I do SRT and RAID 0? Should I do RAID 10?

I wouldnt' raid anything with that missmash of drives. Use the samsung as OS, ocz to install games, and the other two for storage drives.

You could configure some of that so it isn't a hassle to work with 4 drives letters if that was concern.

^+1 There's no reason for you to raid anything.

Ok, with that in mind, how would I configure the OCZ to display games on my desktop while the Samsung is running the OS. OR like you said, configure it so there isn't 4 drive letters.

Can you move file folders to different drives and still have the show on your desktop?

That's my question.

Yes, you would just need to create shortcut to them. Lots of people do this with network shares, or other drive letters as your setup will have.

You could install applications to any drive you want.
