Quick Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I know this is a noob question, but hey first build so what ever...
I see where many people have say 2 raptors then like a 500gb hd, my question is if you save say a game on the 500 gb are you going to get the speed of the raptors or does the game have to be saved on the raptors?

again sorry for the probably stupid question

yes, a saved game is really just a tiny little file that tells the game what to load, so as long as the game's real data is located on the raptors, you can save the game wherever. why would you though, saved game files are quite small.

The game's data should be saved on the Raptors which is the faster drive.
post #4 of 5
just to clarify the games install data shold be on the raptors to load the levels as quick as possible and the save game can be on either drive as it is only small usually under 1MB. But if the games install data is on the 500GB drive you will only get the performance of the 500GB drives not the raptors
