I am going to run 2x 256GB SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series in a Raid 0 Config.

The question is this:

I plan on using this computer for gaming and school work. How big should I make the windows partition? I use steam. Should I partition the the entire space so I can just save and install all my games, data, etc. on the same partition as the OS, with about 72GB for backup?


Should I just partition it for 72GB for plenty of OS room expansion and resource usage and suck it up and learn to do a junction with LSE so I can have the other 440GB free for storage and games?

Suggestions and Advice are welcome. Thank You!

NOTE: I am aware of no performance gains from raiding SSD's

dont RAID use them seperately. use one for OS and backup partition the other for APPS and games. an SSD in RAID has no real performance gains in practical use.
