The reason I went this route is that she plays a LOT of games, having a gamer wife is a blessing and curse, she wants them all available when she wants to play. Right now on her system; Civ V full expanded, Tomb Raider, Skyrim expanded and modded, Adventures of van Helsing, Spore fully expanded, Borderlands 2 fully expanded, Reckoning, Bioshock Infinite, Children of the Nile, Devil May Cry, Neverwinter and Champions Online. She also has about 20 games on her Steam wish list for me to buy
If all she did was game that would be great but she is an avid photographer when it comes to our son. So the setup she has right now is a Kingston V300 120 gig for OS and Apps, V300 240 Gig for her games and an older Kingston V series 60 gig for her documents and pictures.
The other 60 she had is now in Kingston external housing that came with the drive and going to be used for backups.

Thanks and to answer your question, in my opinion no. My reasoning is based on what WOD35 said in his post. Her setup gives her better performance than a single large drive since the OS and temp files can work on a separate drive and thus allow more things working at once. I gave her a single drive for her games because she only plays one game at a time, so the drive is only forking for that one game. A separate drive for her docs so they are easily backed up and again it allows for a bit more potential speed.Edited by Mopar63 - 8/11/13 at 6:44am
