Best Configuration with this Setup?

See Sharp
 Share

So I rebuilt my computer recently, and decided to compile a bunch of SSD drives that I had in the past along with a few new ones I bought. Here's what my inventory looks like:

1 x 250GB Samsung Evo Pro 850

1 x 500GB Samsung Evo Pro 860

2 x 500GB WD Blue M.2 SSD

1 x 1TB Knockoff Cheap SSD

1 x 3TB Toshiba HDD

1 x MSI M7 Gaming Motherboard

 

What is the best, most recommended RAID or any particular configuration for accommodating the above storage items? Looking forward to seeing all of the suggestions.

Do you have Samsung EVOs or PROs? Or both, one of each? 

 

Id boot off 250GB Samsung

main data on 500GB Samsung 

raid 0 the WD Blues...but what chipset is that mobo? AMD or Intel? Idk if amd supports trim over raid 0 like intel does...

games on that or the 1TB cheap ssd and use the 3TB for backups or video storage if you record and edit too.

 

what do you do with your PC? How you plan your storage depends on the actual workflow/tasks you do.

EVO's, both of them. 

The PC is for gaming. It's an Intel i7 7700k, 1151LGA chipset. 

 

Thanks for the feedback!
