Re: Too complicated

One other point that hasn't been made... each SSD will consume a SATA port and preferably a 6Gbps port. Your system will have a small and finite number of these and you don't want to fill them all up from the outset since that will restrict your future options when you need to add more bulk storage capacity for video or whatever.

The motherborad will have 6 SATA 6Gbps ports. Putting 2 or 3 drives in from the start is not going to restrict anything.

Keep it simple. One large SSD plus appropriate HDD's for bulk storage.

Or two SSD's. Same principle. Rotating platters are for servers.
