Hey there. This is my first time doing a build and I have one question to ask you all. I am building a gaming pc and have no clue what an ssd drive does. If I have an ssd do I need a hard drive? If I have a hard drive do I need an ssd? Here is my checklist thus far. I am looking into the intel 330 (120 gigs) for the ssd, And a western digital blue (500 gigs) for a hard drive. Also make corrections as you see them.
