Looking for advice and/or feedback on re-configuring my computer.
Initially, I was going to just have a 500gb SSD and a 1 TB spinning HD for backup.
Remembered I have a 120gb SSD that I'm not using.
So... thought I'd add both SSD drives. - 1 ea. Samsung 500gb Evo and 1 ea. Silicon Power 120gb.
Tech specs say they both read and write at about the same rate.
Thought I would install the OS (Windows 10 pro) and all programs on the 120gb and all data on the 500gb and finally use the spinning 1TB to backup data.
Probably the biggest resource user I have is Photoshop Elements 14. Currently the photo catalog is about 55gb.
I'm still researching whether I can load the PS14 program on the 120 SSD and have all the catalog of pictures on the Samsung 500.
I think I tried that before and the PS14 program wanted the catalog of pics to be on the same drive that the program is on.
Jury still out on that..
I built the system last year.
ASUS H170 Pro Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3000
Intel Core i5-6500 Skylake Quad-Core 3.2 GHz and Be-Quiet! Pure Rock Slim CPU Cooler
ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual-fan OC Edition VR Ready
WD Blue 1TB SATA (WD10EZEX)
ASUS 24X DVD Burner
Thermaltake Smart Series 500W Power Supply
Hopefully, Microsoft won't make an issue and give me another serial number key if needed when I do a fresh Win 10 install.
