Proposed PC Drive Plan

1) Samsung EVO 256gb SSD: OS+

2) EVO 500gb M.2 NVMe: P3Dv5

3 EVO 1tb M.2: All addons: FS Global Ultimate NG, all ORBX Global & LC's, MAIW Matrix, AIG_AIM full install, plus tons of scenery/airports.

Would the SSD be a bottleneck for P3Dv5? Is it better to just run the 2 M.2's with P3D loaded on the same M.2 as the OS?

I currently run OS only on #1 above and PC boots fast, so I would prefer to keep my V5 install on the 2 M.2's.

Any thoughts??

Max,

This plan will work great.

The thing I wonder about is how much P3D "talks" to the C drive in the course of its operation and will that "talking" cause problems for its smooth operation due to the speed difference between the ~6gb/s SSD and the ~32gb/s M.2s.

Or maybe I am just way too picky!

Thanks and STAY SAFE!

I think you're unduly worried here... both types of SSD are so much faster than a HDD.
