Do i need RAID? Tags: NAS / RAID Storage Last response: November 18, 2012 9:11 PM in Storage Share techfan47 November 17, 2012 8:48:13 PM 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??? More about : raid maestro0428 a b G Storage November 17, 2012 8:50:52 PM 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. techfan47 November 18, 2012 9:11:51 PM 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 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
