    Suggestions required on PP CS5 drive scheme ...

      Hey guys, first time poster here.

       

      I have seen Harm's guide on HDD configurations and need more information, based on my hardware.

       

      I was able to scavenge the following from different projects:

       

      - 1x Intel 80gb SSD (X25-M)

      - 2x OCZ Vertex 30gb

      - 1x Kingston 64gb SSD

      - 2x Seagate 7200.12 1tb drives

       

      I was thinking of using the Intel SSD as the Windows7/Application drive, and the 2 Seagates as media drives, but I don't know how to best use the remaining 3 SSDs (especially because of their smallish sizes)...

       

      Any suggestions?

          WebPLC,

           

          I'm pretty open minded to SSDs for OS and programs, but the smaller SSDs have such horrible write speed that they are not good for much else when it comes to a PC being used for PP CS5.

           

          So, my suggestion would be:

          - stick with your plan to use the X25 for your OS and Seagates for your new build (See Harm's tips for how to best use the 2 1TB's)

          - sell the other 3 SSDs ASAP or trade for a matching X25 (don't mix gen1/2) - then RAID0 the pair for your OS/Programs
