Re: New Build: SDD or HD
If you foresee running a fairly lean machine then I would forego the raptors and run everything on a single slightly larger ssd, say 240GB/250GB. You would benefit from games loading faster, i.e. the different levels in Portal 2. Everything would load faster. You can always add hdds later if need be. I have my pagefile set at 400MB/400MB just for the apps/games that might require one.
