Hello. I'm a new guy and in the beginning stages of a new computer build. I haven't built a computer in a while so I am a bit out of touch with the best agreed upon solutions. My build will be targeting awesome performance but not ultra performance. So I will be looking for a motherboard with preferably 2 U.2 or M.2 slots. If only one I would get a Pcie to M.2 / U.2 adaptor. I really want to raid (0) through the fastest connections available. The raid (0) drives (500 gig to 1 terabyte) would contain my O.S first, but part of my question is what other type of files should I consider placing on the boot drive. Once I have my raid zero setup, I want to have another pair of ssds for backup, so my raid (zero) would evolve into a raid (10). Now comes the fun part, I want to also have at least two hdd's for pure storage or for the types of programs that you suggest would run fine on less than fastest performance. I would more than likely place videos and audio files on the hdd. Since computers today can be installed with up to 64gb ram, a swap file may not come into play, but if a windows installation used a swap file, where would be the best place to put it? The Hdd's or should I partition the raided ssd's for use as a swap file or would this place too much activity on the ssd. So I am asking for your suggestion for the best way to setup a new computer system with 2/m.2 ss'd's , 2/sata ssd's and two sata hdd's. If this wouldn't work then what suggestion would you give to someone with 4/m.2 ssd's and 2/sata hdd's? What configuration would you recommend, even if I have to drop an idea or include something that I did'nt think about? Thanx.
