Just bought a new WD 160 gig HD 7200rpm w/ 8MB cache, I also have a 80 gig ST380021A hard drive, which I believe is a Seagate http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/specs/ata/st380021a.html
this is info on drive that I could find. Also seems to be 7200rpm, and I think a 2MB cache.
Now my 80gig currently has windows and all my files on it, but I'm looking for a setup which will give me the best performance.
I need to know stuff like:
Which drive should be Master
Which drive should I put the OS on
How Should I set-up my partitions
Where do I put the swap file
I have read on the internet that some people set up different partitions for stuff like game installations, p2p apps, music etc.
Im basically looking for the best performance using 2 drives.
Also I might be interested in having 2 OS's having Linux on one to do some experimenting, but I dont want 1 hd for linux, 1 for windows, I am mainly using windows and want the fastest set up for that.
Thanks in advance!
