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 7 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.
There are several programs including STEAM that will want to put at least some of the files on the C: drive. Best to Partition the whole drive and use a fast 7200RPM or better secondary drive. Some games like Civ5 have huge performance gains from a regular SSD.
I swap out the programs manually to my second drive when I am not playing them actively.
Online games tend not to have much performance gain.
