Ssd/hdd perfromance as os drive Tags: SSD Hard Drives Storage Last response: December 9, 2012 8:08 AM in Storage Share FroZen_789 December 6, 2012 7:10:02 PM hello, I have a question currently I have e green 1tb 7200rpm drive which I use as OS drive... I'd like to start my youtube channel so I decided to go for an SSD to record. Is it better if I have my OS, my game (bf3, cod,...) and the recording on the ssd at the same time or is it better if I have on my SSD the OS and the game running but the recording goes to the HDD? It should be 1080p btw... More about : ssd hdd perfromance drive DarkSable a b G Storage December 6, 2012 7:29:32 PM I'd do it like this: Put your OS on the SSD - this should always be done. Put the recording software on the SSD as well - it will benefit HUGELY. Don't bother putting the game on the SSD, as it won't help framerates. (Having the recording software on there WILL.)

It helps with that. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
