Best setup with Dual SSD and dual HDD
Jul 23, 2013

I am setting up a new system with two 250 GB SSDs and two 3GB HDDs. In adition I have a large NAS for backup and archive. I am a bit uncertain of how to make use of all this glory... I will use this system for primarilly photo editing and some video editing.

I am thinking of using one SSD for the system and program. The other for swap files and photoshop temp and the two HDDs as a software Stripe RAID0 volume.

Is there a better way to make use of the two SSDs?

Would there be much gained to use the motherboard Raid options rather than the Win Stripe volume option? I tried this at first but did not quite manage to get it running. Is it worth the hassle performance wise?

Is there a better software RAID option that I should consider?

Does the competent forum have any other thoughts och takes on this?
