Windows 7: All on one or split for SSD

14 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM + SP1
All on one or split for SSD

Hey peeps,

I have been looking at SSD's as i think its about time to upgrade.

At the moment i have 3 HDD's (As per my system specs below)

The way i have my PC set is WD Caviar Black 500GB for OS and apps
WD Caviar Black 750GB for games
WD Caviar Blue 500GB for Media

(I do have an external for backup)

I do it this way so i don't one HDD doing everything as i have a tendency to play a game with WMP playing and most probably have Firefox or IE9 open.

What my initial thought was, was to have 2 separate SSD's for OS and Games keeping a HDD for Media.

Would it be a good idea to have separate SSD drives or will 1 SSD suffice.

All advice is greatly appreciated.

I think you would be fine with a single SSD for your OS, games, and applications

have you looked into RAID - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia at all?
