My current desktop PC at home currently has an all HDD setup, with O/S and Apps on one HDD and data files on another. I want to build a new PC and this time around I want to use solid state storage for O/S, Apps, and smaller data files. I will also get a big 6TB HDD for video files, movies and the like. The two choices I'm considering are:
1) get a large 2TB SSD, partition it, and put O/S and Apps on one partition and smaller data files on another partition, or
2) get two 1TB SSD's, and put O/S and Apps on one and smaller data files on the other. I need a fairly large O/S drive as I have multiple operating systems and copies each.
The main consideration is this: would getting two SSD drives provide for perceptively snappier system response compared to putting everything on the same drive? It certainly helps to divide the work when using HDD's so that file opening doesn't bog down the system and vice versa. But I don't know if the same holds true in the world of solid state. Any input would be very helpful. BTW, the SSD's would be Samsung EVO or PRO SATA III in 2.5" form factor.
