So my upcoming build I'm going for should have 2 SSDs, this: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/3F8H99/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mzv5p512bw and this: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/FrH48d/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz75e500bam (Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive and Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive) I've been told that the NVMe drive is faster than the 2.5" SATA drive so I was thinking about having my OS on the NVMe drive. Now here's the question: what should I put on each drive? Will it be better for me to put my games (mostly Steam games) on the faster drive with the OS or will that significantly shorten the lifespan of that SSD? I'm pretty sure that I should place my extra files like music, docs, pics, etc. on the 2.5" drive but that drive has a little less space. Is there anyone out there that has a similar configuration to this that would have any recommendations?
