    Advice Please

    so, i'm getting a new PC but now wondering where to install SAC to.
    my problem , i will have 2 drives.
    1 SSD with 128GB, on which windows is installed
    and
    1 HDD with 1terranibble, errr byte
    i would usually install on the HDD just incase i need to redo the windows install etc, but after reading up a bit it seems the SDD is faster for data swapping .
    soooooo ....
    can anyone a bit pc/tech savvy give me a tip please.

    Well as far as I know, SSD is faster, faster startup etc.
    You could install on HDD first then the SSD, to see if you notice a difference?

    My PC has two drives also.

    By default, Windows installs all programs on the the drive with windows itself (so the SSD one in your case) and all data (pictures docs etc) to the second drive. That works for me.
    If at first you do succeed - try not to look surprised!

    Find me in game as Majenta EU1

    i prefer to put games on my HDD, and let my SSD contain Operating system+ a few important software, that will be used oftenly. You could say HDD as my vault and SSD as my backpack
    and yes SSD most of the time are faster than the HDD one especially after they become aged

    thanx Rishi
    and ty for everyone who answered. i also managed to chat with one of the carers at the office, he suggested putting it on SSD,
    that is what i shall do then. everything else, especially my fotos and screen shots will definitely be going on the HDD, i already lost so many due to pc breakdowns.
    can't wait to run our game on it though, especially as it looks like i may actually make itz over lvl 50 this time

    well, i had my first game experience on the new pc yesterday, and all i can say is WOW , what an awesome game now i can see everything better.
    i have re-fallen in love with it.
    installed on the SSD, loading time is much faster now and i shall leave the SAC there rather than check how it runs on the HDD.
    not gonna try fixing what isn't broken
