I am planning on building my own custom build this summer, I have been researching and learning how to build a pc. I got a few questions regarding to hard drive and solid state drives installation for example, having a SSD and a one or two HDD's. How would I install windows 7 and it's updates + cache into the SSD and have my harddrive be where the programs/games are installed? What if I get two harddrives and don't want to do RAID due to less reliable read/write? How would I be able to backup everything into external hard drive or into a third hard drive for backup? Just how would I combine both hard drives together and also have a SSD for windows 7 to speed up the overall system time and boot up? Also one last question, just how much space is enough to install windows 7 and all it's updates in it for a SSD? Is 128gb good enough? or is that too much?
Sorry if this thread has already been posted and answered somewhere else in this forum. I am sort of new here.
