Hello, i am building my first gaming desktop pc. I dont know much about raid and if i need it. I plan to use an SSD as a boot drive.
And a 1tb HDD.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. What does master/slave configuration do. Is it the same as RAID??? :pt1cable:

There is no master and slave in RAID on SATA set ups. You won't need a RAID for a gaming rig anyway. The SSD/HDD setup you have will work just fine.

So mater and slave is on IDE ports?
If i install windows to ssd, can use another ssd for caching my hard drive? Can i do it like that?
Thanks :bounce:
