What is the best setup? SSD or HDD or SSD+HDD
Hello new to ssd's, I have 2 ssd's 1 corsair force le 120gb and a corsair force gs 128gb, I also have a 1tb WD green caviar hdd and a 1.5tb green caviar. I have a Intel DZ68BC for a mobo. So I am just trying to figure out what kind of setup would be recomended, which hd should be the OS dedicated drive and which or if should be in raid? Thanks.
"Best" is subjective.
Do you need Raid? Can you explain why you need it?
For the most part having your OS on an SSD and your data on a HDD will meet most end user requirements.
Provided, of course, that your OS has some clone or image backup and that your data (on the HDD?) is likewise somewhere else backed up.
I favor a SSD for my OS and some other disks (both a SSD image and a HDD backup) for system and data recovery.
Both ( SSD + HDD) would be be my answer to your question.

Depends on what you use this for.
Me? This is what I would do.
All 4, no RAID.
1 x SSD for OS and applications
1 x SSD for a couple of games that benefit from the SSD
1 x 1TB HDD for games an all that other stuff
1 x 1.5TB HDD for backups.
Personally, in todays market, I would not have gotten those 2 small SSD's. But since you have them, use them.
