Building a new system here. My question is simple,: I think, it’s just that I have never used Sata controllers. It’s been that long since I’ve built a system. I am using a Gigabyte X58-UD3R mobo. I have an OCZ agility 2 SSD and a Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD. My plan is to install the OS on the SSD and the HDD for storage. What is the best way to configure these 2 storage devices? (which ports and will this be raid 0 or not raid at all) I also have an external hot swap dock on my case, can and how would this be connected?
Install the OS with just the SSD installed. After completed install shut down and then install your HDD.
