Gaming Setup?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I run Steam and Origin programs and games. I have a Fresh Raid0 on 2x M4 256gb SSD. I have a 3rd M4 256gb available. Now should I install OS on the single and set up all game programs on the raid0? Or just put everything on the 2x raid0? Or setup differently??

raid has no trim support afaik. also degrades garbage collection process so it may actually decrease your SSD performance by raiding in the 1st place.

raid on SSD is pointless at best because a SATA3 SSD is already plenty fast for ANYTHING you can use on a consumer level.
