First build questions - illZero - 10-31-2011

Hi,

Just joined this site recently - was thinking of buying a pre-built Dell but stumbled upon this site and after reading great articles by Mathieu and seeing helpful posters on the forums, I've decided to build my own computer.

One question, I'd like to get an SSD to put my games/operating system, but was thinking of getting a separate HDD to hold other things like music, etc. Is this possible? If so, do I need any additional things other than the HDD?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, that is possible. As a matter of a fact, that's what I recommend for the Mainstream Gaming PCs ( http://www.hardware-revolution.com/mainstream-gaming-pc-v301-updated-hard-drives/ ).

Depending on the motherboard that you pick, you may need an extra SATA cable, but other than that, you don't need additional things.
