Velociraptor about to be here quick question..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My harddrive gets here tomorrow I am going to be using a 300gb velociraptor for windows and my programs and then a 500gb harddrive for storage. I have a 790i board I do not need to do a raid since they are different drives right? Do I have to plug the SATA coords into certain slots or is it a BIOS setting?

Not sure I understand your question. There is no need for raid unless you want to.

you cannot raid the two drives you have listed together regardless.

with a velociraptor, raid is moot as its the fastest single drive available (short of SCSI)

No, you just are going to set them to your primary boot device so that you boot to your OS. You can use your Veloc. for whatever you like.
