  1. I currently have two harddrives in my system a Maxtor DiamondMax 9 160 GB 7200rpm and a Western Digital Raptor 36GB 10000rpm.
    Now i want my system optimized for gaming so i have the games installed on the Raptor, and have a separate partition for the windows page file also on the Raptor thats it. All other files including windows is on the Maxtor.
    Bearing in mind i want my system optimized for gaming have i got this correct or should i just have windows on the Raptor, although if i do this there will not be enough room for my games so they will need to be on the Maxtor.

    actually, it doesn't matter that much. I would recommend that your
    pagefile be located on the fastest drive.

    reduce the size on the Maxtor to a minimum and add a large one to the Raptor

    Ah ok, i will keep things the way they are then. I dont actually have a page file on the Maxtor as i've disabled Write debugging information from the memory dump options, mainly because XP has been solid as a rock for me :)
