Am almost ready to start putting my new build together and am thinking about drives now.
I have an ASUS P5Q PRO motherboard which has only one IDE connector and 8 SATA connectors.
I have 1 x 80 GB IDE drive
1 x 320 GB SATA
1 x 500 GB SATA, And a mate has just given me a 40GB SATA drive as well.
What would be best to install VISTA 64 BIT onto, ,
I was originally going to use the single ide connector to run both my dvd drive and the 80gb ide drive (dual cable) and install the OS on that.
But, , now i have this smaller 40gb sata drive as well, wouldnt it be better to install the os on that drive and keep the other 2 sata drives as well and do away with the ide hard drive altogether ? ?
I was planning on using the 320gb sata drive to install my DAW , and only my daw, ,(digital audio workstation ) for my recording studio software and software pluggins and soft synths. Nothing else would go onto this drive.
The 500gb drive would be for storage, , my 100gb music library, and video files etc, , ,
So , ,40gb sata or 80gb ide for the OS and peripherals drivers etc , , ? ? ?
